"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?
IT IS NOT THE COUNTING OF THE DAYS
THOUGH DAYS LEFT ARE TOO FEW
before"The New"changes all our numbering
Then,instead of counting,we will recount
all the wounds and flowers of our cycle.
Looking back has never been a good view-
we tend to compare/there has never been
a "good"without a "better"..Then we wish for MORE-
that"the best is yet to come"
and "Welcome in the New"-while these last few moments
are someone's birthday,a significance
lost to few...
