Rain check 

Dark clouds take over the whites,

As the eternal shine is whipped off the sky. 

Busy feets rushing for some shade to hide

While I sit near the Tea stall with a cigarette to light. 

The first thundering and my tea is served,

I light my cigarette as raindrops start pouring from above. 

An inverted rainbow takes over my face 

While suited men curse the rain. 

I take a sip of my tea

Just perfect as one can be, 

Some smoke to feel in the gaps 

I wallow in the after heat shower in the city.

      1. My name is Tanushree Karmakar and I am currently residing in kolkata, West Bengal, India.
        It’s too hot here with occasional rain but the humidity is never gone.
        Else, things are fine except, when I read the news headlines, I wish to run away to some lonesome place and spend the rest of my life there.

      2. Actually i’m bit curious to know.
        So if you could just tell me here or other way out.
        I’d be glad to know from a person who is facing actual scenario rather than media.
