RDP Thursday: Petrichor

Rainy Day

Rain on London concrete
Wet dust in the air
Wet, damp, stifling
there is nothing to compare
Looking through the window
watching raindrops fall
dark patterns written on a surface
of a wet and soaked wall
I take a train to somewhere
the windows beading drops
the journey continues heedless
rain is no reason for stops
Wear a headscarf and a raincoat
were the orders I receive
I hated rainy days
raindrops collecting in my sleeve
Rain on London concrete
Wet dust in the air
Wet, damp, stifling
there is nothing to compare

Rain 11.09 (1)
