"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?"
EVERYTHING IS CONSCIOUS-
It may not look like us-but a tree has intelligence
Animals have intuition.Birds flee fires.
Sentience is not limited to human capacities
Many of us are not yet fully human
We lack empathy,compassion,intuition
We let ego rule over common good
Hence chopped forests ,replaced by boxed prisons
Hence bottled waters,and stagnant dammed creeks
Hence bushfires ,floods,hurricanes/denial of climate change
Hence virulent viruses which shake our certainties
We need adapt to divergent modes of consciousness
As W H Auden said"We must love one another-or die"
