"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?
LIKE SHIPS IN THE HARBOR
Like carriages on a train/cars on the road/aircraft in the skies
When news ripples out in this one world pond,we all react
Death of one is death of parts of all of us-whether Mexico,Yemen,Sudan,Syria
Refugees are us in stone times-asking for soft shelter
If we can love enough to open doors,hearts,eyes,ears,ourselves
We find the broken fit comfortably inside us very well
We recognize what they say as familiar circumstance
We learn the paths of evolutionary love- Philia,Agape,Eros,Platonic
and the million gradations in between.Gardens for butterfly migrations.
Sanctuary for ocelots.Wild preserves so we can allow ourselves to be free
enough to allow all others to be free,too..
