"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?
LOVE IS NEVER JUST ONE "THING"
Love is never just one person-
whether it be lover or ex-,friend,child,mother,father ,elder,ancestor ,enemy or stranger
Whether it be cat or dog or rabbit ,rat or snake or ferret
whether it be plant,vegetable,tree,fruit,food,drink or distraction
Love is focused energy.It lifts up and elevates.It affirms WHAT ALREADY IS
You stumble in the dance,unfamiliar steps present themselves
Should you dance like a Greek in a crowd or a Sufi in a circle?
Like a Quaker,a Shaker or a Baptist/Evangelical?
Like Indigenous,Tribe,Clan or Country?
Like the Present Moment,Past -or Future?
In youth,i went to Dance Halls-where groups socialized
via formal dancing and less strict modes.Now Karaoke,Disco,Festivals,Raves.
Love Changes Us.Love moves with us and within us and to us and in us and from us
It is always a dance.Steps always change.
