Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:
"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?
EYE TURN TO YOU WITH RESPECT
Build with those who share their bread
and trust deep oceans will feed with fish
There are still those who feel
enough for two or three or more
Who add to this world we are within
and whose steps are unique /forever
is the moment we are in.It lasts as long
as our attention span.And as long as we look and seek
Good examples may just supply
the respect we give.The respect we need.
