"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?
THERE IS NO "THING"
THERE IS NO "ONE"
Begin with nothing.End the same
In between-pile experiences to be forgotten
by almost every witness&participant.Significance
a PARTICIPATION AWARD for your making it so far.
We all have ghosts.Sometimes,they return/to teach
For us to learn.From their mistakes.That flashed them OUT
into the No Thing Nest that steals all identities,and leaves us
with grave implications.Degeneration.Deterioration.Despondency-
Are these all 'Natural"?or as willed as Happiness and Gratitude?
While we are here,we learn/to forget.When we have forgotten every thing
it returns in other forms/to remind us-trust nothing.Love Everyone.
