"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?
SOLITUDE AND SILENCE
ENTERING THIS INTERNAL CATHEDRAL
Where stillness means raindrops on water
Solitude a witness to the birth of miracles
Twinned/twined DNA threads in dolphin play
Consciousness a wave,tidal in/retreating back
This rhythm sustains our hearts ventricles
Pump of red wine through sanctuary skin
Bread of Life,Fish of Praise.Net of Prayers
to catch the marvelous .Drag weight to shore
To feed those hungry for more than water and bread
Entering the waters,in trust for transformation.
Even fish know/all prayer is function.
