"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?
FRAGMENTS SEEK THE WHOLE
Precipitate together in the Gravity of Now
Seek shelter and sanctuary "with those who share their hopes"
Here is where you come in-to gather them ,smilingly,bravely
To risk arrest for free speech and freedom of assembly
To speak to Power and Naked Emperors directly
To affirm ,connect,inspire and collaborate
To be open to diffuse views and divergence
To seek those who will stand together
in order that Life continues to inspire
As you do when you ask us to gather
and lead as one by example and as inspiration
Always,ever,on!Thank you for active participation
in this Dance we call Life-for no other word spins like dervishes
into the streets ,from which all Authority allegedly derives its legitimacy
Your smiling integrity leads us to believe /this is both process,integration and destination.
Happy Manifestations!All your life is a demonstration-for inclusion ,kindness ,compassion.
