"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?
Sleep through life like Rip Van Winkle
Sleep through this as you drift off
to dull poetry or somnambulist speakers
you disconnect and float like a balloon up up and away..
Conscious is not continuous-it begins with connection,
ends with synapses and forgetfulness.Alzheimer enters,
Sleep deprived snore@their desk.Sleep Sessions restore balance.
Levels of connection link us to our sleep work.We awake.Awaken.Rush..
yet if we FESTINA LENTE,new modes of perception open to us.
Sleep of the Calm and Just.Deep Sleep solutions.On the seas of sleep,
we are surface fisherpersons.Throwing lines into the Deep,
to find ourselves again.
