"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?
HANGING CHADS AND JUDGES
WHICH IS TO BE MASTER?
Moon by day simple as stars by night
Neither be Master/both be Guides
And Zen/when Everything is a Meditation
Everywhere a Temple to Understand within
it matter less division,differences,defenses,difficulties
Only Acceptance/Surrender/Willingness to Align
with that Great River of Stars in the Sky/under whose signs
we boast our miniature Cavalcade of Caravans Tumbling Torments
Solved and Sorted.If we can name them,we can claim them!
Empires began like this-and Sciences!Etymology.Archaeology.
Solutions and Panaceas call like Medicinal Herbs ,Plants,
All is Holy!Even the Horror of Failure to Thrive,
when every seed turns stone,everywhere a Wall/War..
Everyone a NO!NO!Then,i guess,we turn to Flowers again-
Bach Remedies,Wildflowers,Silence,Song and Speech
To Sing our way into Blake's Paradise
and sit and dream upon a nearby nightsky beach.
