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?"
WHEN YOU COME BACK
FROM A JOURNEY OR A PILGRIMAGE
You are revived/refreshed/renewed/resuscitated
You have the energy of change around and within
The journey home depletes you(Dragons, Breathing...
Now the chainmail must come off, to be repaired
Now the Quest is -Return to Normal(whatever that might be..
Forest has moved again to Dunsinane..When shall we three meet again?
When Cornwall calls,with winds and tides and wild seas
Meanwhile-to Huddersfield,in your cup of tea hospitality
With Jazz and friends ,singing in photographs and poetry...
