"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?"
NEIGHBORS OF LYNETTE IN BRADFORD
They had lived on a canal boat with 100% recycling
Geoff was a ham radio operator.Mavis loved poetry.
She had a book of her favorites she would bring out
whenever i dropped in from staying @Lynette's
(which was often as they cooked the best English food,
and played piano and organ and squeezebox well..
so poetry readings and food eatings and music recitals combined...
On National Poetry Day,Geoff would contact anyone round the world
with any interest in poetry.Such a generous spirit!(as he had no horse in that race
Mavis died.Geoff moved.Yet he stayed in contact-sent a picture of his new wife
We both conjure up the spirit of Mavis-sweet,musical,with a love of poetry so deep
she held them close as her children.Such spirits bless this world-and every dreamer within..
