"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?
I LEAVE THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS UP&ON
EVEN WHEN THE NEW YEAR BEGINS
Seasons flash by like car accidents
Slow and easy in the wings
Darkness is a meditation
Desolation a one-way conversation
Your response is gold mining
Tattooed on the skin shining.
Of course,we will continue-
Habit is habitual.Happiness epidemic.
Smiles and laughter up against
every headlined disaster.Antidote
is our breathing through these times together.
Alone is lonely,and wants only to be with another.
Let your own love be that Light
that beams despite emotional dark weathers.
