"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?
SO WE GATHER
as we have always gathered
in circles and in spirals
round fire and by candles
deep in the dark night
of the shortest day and the longest night
we become spark and Light.Moon power by night.
We listen to each other and ourselves.Solstice
simply means we go inner as well as out
We look into each other and ourselves
We use poem,prayer,chant,ritual,anthem
to incant a way through this time passage
so we may greet each other in a new way
much like the old way.Only we have transformed
and will never be the same again
Until we meet again.
