"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..
