"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?
FIRST I WAS LOOKING FOR THE MOON
NEXT,I WAS LOOKING UP @THE MOON
And the sky was moving in a slow and spinning way
And stars appeared ,as if to play
And the early morning blue blood moon
put all connection in context..We are spinning
on a rock,among other rocks,some illuminated
by a planet that is decaying over time.
This little mirror of our lives
is still above us tonight..
Will be hollow by morning sunlight
As always,we only have tonight...
