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?"
WHAT MATTERS MOST
may not mean our breathing well,in harmony
with all who share the same air ,water,earth and sky
Nor (necessarily)our relationships with family,
peer group,ancestors and future youth
Not even what we say,feel,express or repress
from the public or private record of our presence
What matters most may simply be-the Light we share
with those who care to see,be and empathize with.
Stories exist long before and will after our existence
What we remember and recall about those who pass
is the difference between BEFORE and AFTER...
Before we knew them,and the Light that lingers after they leave..
Of course,life per se lives ,collectively and individually-
but we make a difference in the moments of our breath,
and in the sharing of our lives-a Golden Resonance..
