"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?
IF POETRY CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE
THEN MAKE POETRY THAT HEALS(not hurts)
Let it save the lives of poets on front lines
Writing down the world and transforming
into those powerfilled Blakean Angels
we so much wish to believe in..
with wide wings of Imaginings
that make deep healing possible
If it be prayer,or chant,invocation,incantation
May it be harmonic enough to annul all dis-ease
Turn poverty to prosperity,and create such joy
as true bells of laughter ring..
