"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?
TO MOVE IS TO LIVE!
To live is to move!
and no metaphor is more plant-based
than tumbleweeds.Seeded then separated
Wind-assisted by storms and tempests,
they become more than Texas movies.
There is nothing more challenging
than an emotional environment
that changes as you do not change-
that interdependently exists outside your purvey.
If each City were a Desert,consider tumbleweeds
as homeless refugees or itinerant farm workers
Only they do not farm.They simply roll around
Like desert dolphins.Wind farms for Nature.
Round evidence of cycles deeper than farm and planted crop .
