"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?
HE USED TO CLEAN WINDOWS FOR A LIVING
Van Morrison has a song"When I am cleaning windows"
When flying,i always sit in the window seat
It gives me an illusion of freedom.To stare out@clouds
as we pass through or above them.The clearer your eye's windows
the sharper your perception.Inner eyes see more-
the way you intuit events,and perceive how people will respond.
It does not need a virtual app to let you know your glasses need cleaning.
Same with your house.To see out,drop the dust of attitude.
To see within,release all expectations.When the windows of your world are clear
what you see might align with what actually is..
