on my birthday - a poem by my Zambian friend

The skies shed of the dark, Africa cheers, the birds beat their wings and the sun grows beyond the horizon.

A new day, with a name inscribed in the precious august winds of sunrise, a memory in the promise of the sun's rays and the sweet melodies of the busy birds.

Another milestone in a long journey called life, shall we pause for a while and say Happy Birthday John!
