"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?
WHEN TOWNS TURN TOXIC
and the sea seems balm-
I commit myself to depth and tide and calm
Roll in to waves on a beach /or waters of a well
or beneath waterfalls,where drops tell
stories of liquidities.Sea is where we came from
and where we all end up,once earth surrenders to
these waves of liquid love.Soft rain or wave
sustains.Gain tranquillity when release of gravity
allows suspension of emotions.Easy!
Water within us and outside.Balance of levity
lets us ride waves of water and of light.Water before us and beyond.
Depths sustain us.Water love.
