"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?
FOR THE LOVE OF LIFE
NEVER ALONE.WE ARE NEVER ALONE
Liu Xiaobo's last words for for his artist poet wife Liu
Twinned,twined,soft as silk,strong as spider's web
Always,ever,together.Even as life
is taken via harshness/softness and solidarity.
Here is where poetry takes home in hearts-
to express both bond and release.Before you ask
why words are necessary,question each bird
as to wings and song/why each bird over walls and Borders
finds a nest in the tree of Another.
