"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?
HEATWAVE AUSTRALIA,COLD VORTICES MIDWEST AMERICA
Perhaps such weather extremes have always been with us
Denial does not change the fact that we are all effected.
Alex huddles in Huddersfield while i amble in Australia
One world ,with so many amplified supplementary contradictions
Much seems beyond control,like the state of air and politics in Bangkok/Washington
On local levels,every body comes alive when activism thrives
It just takes all of us to want to do more than survive.Gated communities,walls and wars won't work.
The one percent realize the 99% must live in the very same world.
We are in the midst of weather changes severe and ongoing
How to thrive in sunshine,when half your world is freezing?
