"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?"
A CHEERFUL CONVOCATION
LUCKY WE ARE TO BE HERE TODAY!
To love is to live and to live is to play!
To love well extends all life/We are all connected/One link in the chain
that holds and binds us /also frees us at all times.. We are all we are-
When one goes/we are less than before. When one leaves/we are broken ,bereft..
Grieving loss for a lifetime gone. We are the black hole sun. We are the loss merchants
Peddling happiness in a Season of Sadness. .All that we are is only this-
THE SUM OF ALL OUR EXPERIENCE
TO LOVE-LETS US LIVE-FOREVER-YES!PLEASE!
