his travel postcard is inspired by the book which I am reading. To say that I am reading the book would be wrong because I am studying the book.

I am mixing the colours in my mind as I read about Matisse, Picasso, and Montmartre. I am seeing the sky through their eyes and wondering about those colours. Now that I am trapped in my home, this is how I am travelling.

By wondering about those cities which I have left behind and by writing new poetry!

We are living in the digital world, covered in the autonomous aspects & tracked motions of life. Yet, somehow we are losing some critical elements. Keyboards, touchpads, & speech-to-text are there, but I believe that handwritten words on paper still means something to poets.
