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?"
TIME IT TAKES TO GROW (& 2 DECLINE
An arrow in the air that falls to ground
Dog escaped from leash and lost
Cat so feral/will never trust another
Pull the plug when those three words resound
"FAILURE TO THRIVE"(needing others around
Elders creak and crack like leaves and trees
all fall in time to ground,decay and seed
These are our source of origins.They revert to child,again
Slow of speech and deep inside silences
Sailing out(dreams first-not coming back again..
Viking funeral or a planted tree?
Which element will seed our future dreams?
or will we let lapse and decay be
the ending of a long and bright sun /moon life story?
This is so true. We treat aging pets better than we do our elderly. frown emoticon
