THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:

"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?"

ACTUALLY, NOT
i have trust and confidence
in the people i know who are active
enough to activate where they are
with fellow flyers of parallel intentions
i have done poetry with those of OCCUPY
done Yoga with EXTINCTION REBELLION  folk
and ,whenever there is a chance for peace
will join with poets,artists and musicians
in trust that a greater good will erupt
when energetic ingredients are sufficient
i am not the only one with such confidence
Every open mic brings new fish to the stone soup
They add TRUTH to the flavor/PASSION to the mix
and share divergent opinions with brave confidence..
There were never any guarantees of complete success
Intrinsic is the quality.Participation the key
We share continuing conversations,to increase and compound positive energies..

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
