"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?
"HERE IS WHAT I OFFER"
This is who i am.Whatever colors you see
are your reflection.Culture is a key
to unlock all Walls.Unless you fly/you will fall.
To listen to each other /is our inspiration.
All the wild birds rise/in anticipation
that Open will be our culture/more than Road and Rail
Unless you free all wild birds/you will fail.
Poets,writers,journalists,academics all need
the oxygen of influences/to feel and to see..
Emergence is ongoing.Freedom is a key
If you can say and speak and sing and chant
YOU WILL BE FREE!
