"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?
WE WOULD MEET @THE DICKINS HOUSE
(i cannot remember if the tennis court
was at or simply near their home-but
we had many local courts then,and tennis
was a National Sport..(Rod Laver,Fred Stolle,Rod Emerson-
they were my heroes..i had their autographs
and would see them play @Milton Tennis Courts..
But,locally,we would play on Sunday afternoons-for fun.For friendship
Barry Dickins a famed local writer .It was his little brother/my friend
Their mother would make tea and scones to welcome us all
Those Sundays slow and smiling and sunny
Even poems,songs and stories cannot conjure up such sweet and simple sunshine times
But you can try..VISUALIZE..Now try the scones for size.Sugar in your tea?
