Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:
"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?"
"LET ME NOT TO THE MARRIAGE OF TRUE MINDS ADMIT IMPEDIMENT"
Rather-let us facilitate ,encourage and assimilate connections and conjugations of parallel minds
in order to facilitate diamond truths from all coal fires of hot conversations
Whether it be via circle sagas,storytelling,Salons,Soirees or particle parties,
the socialization of seekers is salubrious and significant.We learn from each other,
and compound wisdoms when together.Every writer is a magnet and a sponge.We soak in the stories of our times.
We relate to those with whom we share our hopes.We swim in a Sea of Inspirations.
Dive deep for mermaid visions,rise up like dolphins in play.It has always been this way-
From Cave to firelit circles,stories are born,shared,repeated,chorused.They become Legends,
we become Heroes.Before writing-talking,listening,singing,sharing.Speech and song lines.
Fate-meet Free Will.Chance-meet Destiny!Astrologer-meet Astronomer.Past!-meet your Future.
Personified,they are us,chattering finches /monkeys counting to 101.Discoveries come-
We acknowledge their origins and clothe them in "new skin for the old ceremonies"(Cohen)
Everything is repeated.Everyone is repeated.Cycle.Recycle.PARTY AUM!
