Once in a lifetime

Lets live life, Moment by moment, Infinitely! Not in hours and days, Neither weeks and months, And never in years, definitely!   Centuries, you ask? Oh but that is the best.

She kept walking under the umbrella that her friend was holding for both of them. She was doing so more for the comfort of her friend than for herself. The rain had never bothered her. She liked all the dirt and water. She wanted to be a part of it all, a drop of rain, a leaf of a tree soaked with raindrops, a small part of a cloud pregnant with water, ready to empty itself or a speck of soil…
