"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?"
AS DISAGREEMENTS FLARE
THERE IS A TEMPTATION TO WITHDRAW-
to grow silent.Get obsessed.Wonder where to place yourself
when this world seems like a shooting gallery(sometimes,literally)
and peace is a word that seems empty.If you have a garden,
be there.A quiet space-sit there.A sanctuary /meditate there.
Seek that silent space where serenity might enter and return.
If words cheer you-listen/write.If songs inspire-ditto
If actions are required-dance!Affinity with like minds assists-
There will always be a wild forest(even within)-and a river(fast,furious!
A spring,a well,a watery place that refills the waters of you.
It may be with others.Or alone.or both.Everywhere is home.
