"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 Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth 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 with in 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? why not indeed!!"

MORNINGS HAVE THE FRESHEST MOMENTS
dewdrops,transitory.Before Old Sol rolls up
to steal these stars away.Moon a pale reflection
of his fire and might.All my dreams are boats
sailing on a moon tide.When i wake,and take
steps into this new day/eye must leave behind
all i knew as certain,and await unknown unknowns.
Each day as different as directions in a Maze
I love this Labyrinth-even when it is only
horned dilemmas and Minotaurs i find.
