Kolkata Rain

Vintage Words


Of a sudden, it will come

in great gusts on winds that

cool as they blow past

your heatwaved house

and street.


Large puddles of water

from a cooled sky will form

outside your portal where

children will come and play

and splash to the sounds

of laughter.


May the gods who rule thunder

and clouds and storms with rain

befriend you during hot days,

sending blessed storms that rage

just enough to cool the streets

and to cool you.







Author's Notes/Comments: 

Kolkata is experiencing a heat wave and Bishu is miserable. May it rain soon. ~a~
