"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?
BEFORE THE SUN (MOON BALM)
SILENCE SETTLES INTO HER NEST(&RESTS
Dreams grow deep beards and wisdom
enters like a cat door/sprinkles faerie dust and piskie promises
pre-dawn.After midnight is a blank page sea-you can write in water
and it flows to deeper seas,to seek that which has (as yet)no name.
Anonymous was born here,and Everywoman knows her children
will be hungry soon.Now is the time to grow-inwards and down-
in rooted silences and dream space.Arts awaits your finding her.
She hides in Spaces that are not obvious.Hidden Harmonies arise
before you do.Your mind sleeps with your heart .And Art is born again
All pre-Dawn-before sun and speed,noise and motion
destroy all Deeper Dreaming
