"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?
The Desolate Wilderness
(a Thanksgiving Message.)
All whom we know and love come from other lands
They carry history,culture,languages
They compare and contrast Texas with their origins
They assimilate and integrate as pilgrims and as strangers
They also recall,remember and celebrate their ancestors
who gave them the fortitude to go beyond their beginnings
and to be a part of a New World ,still being co-created
Here in Austin,Texas 2017.HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
