"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?
#TO BE BROKEN IS A HEALING
To experience pain and sorrow
To know loss and feel less
To contemplate personal extinction
Perhaps,a person appears-or a language-
Art,or speech,song,or dance..
that allows Despair to sing its way out
To reach and to communicate with others
To find home or community with others
A new life is this life renovated-
extended via creation and its many paths-
to make,create,connect-to live again
by making a Gaudi out of broken pottery
by being Art in a broken world
