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?"

ONLY HALF OUR LIFE IS DREAMING
Only half our heart open/opening.If it were more,
all our Visions for Change/would be as open doors..
If Dreams were all we were,there would be no more adventures
We would be replete/content/assured /that all we were was All.
But Night calls,and all our Worlds Dissolve
All Borders Fall,with only birds,bees,butterflies as Citizens
They amplify birdsong,augment our fruits and vegetables
Add temporary Beauty to our wartorn fearfilled world..
Tithe my time for Contemplation.Meditation.Full Deep Dreaming Zen.
And we will live within a world of wonder,with all Natural as allies and friends..

...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.
