"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?"
COMFORTING & FAMILIAR
Even if we are strangers
&have never been here before
This fits like a warm winter coat
like a candle in dark caves
Oasis in sand deserts
Here,words are water to drink in-
Familiar as rhythms
Comforting as clothes
That space is here,and you
are the Rescue Remedy
Homeopathy of the heart
Midwife of emotions,you embrace
And every growing child knows your face.
