"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?"
SILENCE OF CONSENT
Silence of anger.Silence of humility.
Silence of anticipation.Silence of wrath.
Waiting silence.Expectant silence.
Collaborative silences.Co-operative silences.
Hesitant silence.Harmonic silence.The silence
that follows silence-and the one before.Deep and deeper-
as water drips upwards/and our sky levitates (blue into black-
Yes!silence is dynamic like that.Not a pool but a river.
Not an end in itself-more a journey.Hear?NOTHING.
See?Visual silences.Radio Silence.Feel..Your own..sssssss....
