Hi everyone!

A late afternoon shower, sipping a cup of golden brown tea and writing to you is more fresher than a spring breeze that carries the luminous fragrance of flowers ready to bloom.

The wetness of my hair, the dryness of my skin and the eyes full of life greet you humbly.

So I have decided that I will be releasing an e-book every three months and this is to keep my readers occupied with my writing. I don’t update this blog as much as I should and this is my own fault. I need to spend more time with you all and engage with you. This concept of fans or followers is very 20th century, I am someone of the 21st century and would like to engage with you as friends. We both have investments in each other and these investments will create a long-lasting and loving relationship between a poet and his reader.

To further the relationship, I have also planned for a weekly journal which will be compiled in a book. I will start this in January and I am looking forward to this as it will allow you to see the thoughts that occur within my mind.

As I was having a shower, allowing the water showering upon me to be clean, I decided to clean out my ideas and expectations from the future generation. They will be my children and do I want to repeat the same mistakes that every parent has done to their children? We want our children to follow our dreams and this is wrong. I am not a father yet but I have certainly allowed freedom to be my very flow of life. I always ask if this will give me and the other freedom? In the short term it may look like a limitation but certainly if we take a larger perspective then it is all freedom. I don’t want to see children burdened with the dreams of their parents. It has already happened with my generation and I can tell you that it has really messed things up.

We have revolutions that have no melody, we have rising taxes, mass consumerisation, growing numbers of fast food places and to me we have had it easy living up to other people’s dreams. What happened to our dreams? And I don’t mean dreams as in our aspirations that are embedded in our unconscious. I am on about dreams as in our very being. The deepest core of who we are is what I mean by dreams. When are we going to explore ourselves and stick to what we truly want. I mean in the sense that no sense of the ‘other’ has an influence over it. When we can do this as a collective then we will watch revolutions work and our rights established. We will be free from politics in governments, religion, spirituality, education and corporations.

It is easy to follow people but my poetry tells you one thing – explore it yourself and don’t believe me until you do!

Humbly yours,

Rahul
