"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?
THANKFULNESS AS WAKEFULNESS
AND SILENCE IS A MEDICINE
To be dispensed judiciously
Drop by drop in significance
Between walls of wards and wars
One drop for all that has happened up to now
Another for this present pleasure
Tomorrow's drop is for tomorrow-
We must first dream our star boat passage through tonight
Nothing you have known before controls you now
Everything you are learning is essential
What you may find out tomorrow is extra
It is enough to be wakeful.To be Thankful
To open doors and windows for the antiseptic sunlight
And trust all air will be of grace ,kindness and good fortune.
