"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?
START WHERE YOU ARE
Step by step/towards or away from
Worlds await your walking/perambulating
The sky changes as we change
Earth rises up to meet us
Trees stand (root strong)
We are as this world is
Perhaps we are threatened species
Perhaps we are threatening species
There are still spaces to play/which do not kill
where our skills of negotiation hold sway
Time to move away from distraction/destruction
Time to build again.Step by step.Dance by dance.
Here you are.START!
