"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?
While here in skin/we sing
When even birds are silent,we withdraw
To join with trees a filtered song of skies
Roots beneath,hands raised in salutation
Remember all you were before knowing
What you know now is all that you can carry
Water from the well of human kindness
To slake that thirst for answers to all paradox
Others,too have strung Romantic visions
Wanting makes a wish closer to hand
You bring Heaven a little closer every evening
Clouds come close to love a rainy land
Before we lose your voice and raising praises
May these days and nights echo New Year stanzas..
