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?"
THEY SPRINKLE CLOUDS
Leap of cat and tiger puma pounce
Uncertainty which way the Blue Note Cafe
Outpost Inn.Cafe Wha?Elephant Room.Ronnie Scott.
Circles of sentients feast upon the random.
They expect only continuance./Throb of creating.
Miles Davis.Harold McMillan.Sun Ra.All are living
when we play and replay their attempts upon Heavens.
Poets in their boats float towards this Lotus.
Crushed up against dissonance,assonance makes sweet sense
Parallel tracks towards Infinities.We are here on this island moment.
Every note ever expressed hangs in the piano trumpet air
