...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:

"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?

SANCTUARIES AND SACRED SPACES
FOR ME-WATERFALLS&RAINFORESTS
Also the lip of the sea as it talks and walks in waves
Sea has always been my solution/when all else
is dry dust bowl politics and wasted words..
To immerse in waves makes one aware of deeper rhythms
Older tides that have washed up on Empires long lost
Older stories told-of pirates and shipwrecks
And rocks that broke the back of proud Captains
Sea washes over me,and takes all torments
I can be a fantasy pirate,explorer of strange shores
In my dreams,i travel.Always by ship.Always by sea.

I wave to you in your Ship of Dreams.We smile,peacefully...
