"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?
FROM EMOTIONAL RADIOS
To transmit Light @all times
still leaves shadows waiting..
Crowds outside the cinema
Wanting not Darkness but Illuminations
So we thread globes to Celebrate
Beam candles when the power is out
Reflect the Best that we can Offer
Circumspect when power crushes dissent
We meet because we still can
Because we breathe common air.
Because this Earth is one and borrowed car air
is the only air we bequeath our bicycle children
