"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?
ESCAPE FROM THE PRISON OF CLOUDS
Share her liquidity to all hungry seeds
Gather in creeks and tributaries/become streams
that merge into rivers that flow into the deep.
Start as storm and end as peace.Change state
according to context and circumstance.FLOW!
Chill as ice and sleet and snow.Freeze when appropriate.
Water slips fast past blockages/brings down walls and dams.
Water has power to move us(emotionally)-to salt water tears
of grief or joy or laughter/and expects us to hold our waters..
Spring,well,fissure-from within our only earth comes water
Laughing when young and fresh and bright and brave
Slow as mud when detritus clogs efficacies..
We are as water is-we flow,slow,stop,change state
Freeze when afraid,heat when red conflict warms
Snowflakes and fingerprints.Unique and different.
Ask water where she will glow next.Might be in you.
