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?"
WORD WORLD WITNESS WONDER
YOUR EYES ARE WIDE AS SKIES
Seeking to drink in the worlds
of visions and of dreams,
incarnate in all we feel and see..
Feet take you to the car takes you to the plane
which takes you to up close to wonder at the marvels
that have survived all brutal occupations of our only living planet
Others seek waters on the moon, see canals on Mars
spend billions to escape our natural living wonders
You focus upon the living-unique and astonishing
Rocks and Reefs and Rainforests awaiting conservation..
For, until we see these sweet survivors, we will not know
how lucky we are to be in an Age, where appreciation and respect
means that Nature might just make it through these Global Warmings
For the traffic is on gridlock, gas and oil Dynasties historic
and our lifestyle makes it impossible for all forests to survive
So watch and wait and witness-share your gold experience
Sing the praises of all Natural-so Gaia might revive!
