"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?
FOR KATE TEMPEST
VOICES ARISE AMONG US
They sing the song of the people we know
We recognize them in the mirror of their songs
Reflecting us back to us so we see each other clearer
This is the ancient songline handed down in tongues on fire
Burning with the desire to connect and communicate
They praise the Light within us
They sing the hard truth argot
They lift us and praise all that is
These are those stories -of Kate Tempest!
