"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?
MARY OLIVER CAN NEVER DIE
SO LONG AS WE RE-LEARN THE LANGUAGES
of all impossible creatures winged, furred, fabulous
How they still live inside us(no seed is ever extinct
And if we forget-to be reminded /that doubt is also a belief
Sight is also both vision and emotion/Life pulses through us and all
with more than river blood and heart waters. River seeks sea /
We seek Eternity-in raindrops and in fog, heat and desert strong
enough to wake us up, and sing us back into Dream.This we know,
and knew, and need reminding of/every time we witness wild birds rising
and the cage of the sky falling beneath their wings..This is when we sing
of Mary Oliver's Dreams...
