"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?
MINING FOR YOUR ATTENTION
digging deeper to find gold
Leave those alluvial trinkets
What can be bought and sold
Something darker awaits us
When we go beyond what we need
The Unknown astonishes.Upon that we feed.
We edit out the weather-flu and allergies
We seek only the sunshine of what might never be
When it appears-with a song within our hearts
We realize our edited truth..our life is also our Art.
