"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?
ALL THEY SPEAK ABOUT IS HARVEY
Cancellations,flash flood warnings-even poetry
loses when Libraries shut down for fear of the unknown.
Water has begun to break this drought (in isolated patches)
They are expecting many more inches of rain to descend-
yet on the weather map Harvey looks like a baby in the womb of the sky
Giving birth in the next few days may be painful for Texas.No one knows.
So ancient fears resurrect,and the history of hurricanes in Texas repeats
STOCK UP!EVACUATE!...Word on the Texas coastline
Whatever happens will never live up to the headlines
Takes our minds off politics for three days.
See what resurrects after this Harvey gives birth in Texas!
