"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?"
THERE IS NEVER SILENCE
Even when you walk away from noise
and sit,and stare-or close your eyes
and try to meditate -upon peace,harmony,happiness
or just to be ,in breath /alive.Linked to all alive.All living..
Good to know of the loss-of birds,gone.Forever.
That this must not happen again.Come back,birds!
Good-bye Monsanto.Mutation is ongoing,
but we can choose-to welcome back all that grows
and is golden in Spring,silver in Winters.
Everyone in shape and form knows this-communion
with all of breath and wing and walking.We are less
when wings fall.Even less when creatures disappear.
Extinction is a process of finalities.When we return,
it will be with darker wings.Different dreams.
May we paint with brighter colors-this astonishing sunrise.
These cyclic sunsets..
