January 30th

{THE POEM BELOW WAS WRITTEN BY JULIET T SHEKEDE- COCO J ON THE OCCASION OF MY 26th BIRTHDAY. THANKS JULZ}

Your story, my story
Begins with the sun
Under the glistering blistering savanna sun
Oh how immaculate
Sunrays piercing through the clouds
Bringing light to a day

It was the perfect year
The perfect month and day
When the lands were green
Green representing life
Inevitable that something
Something was to come to life
And in such a season
It was to never miss a breath
Neither was it to skip a heartbeat

Flapping its beautiful colourful wings
Like a plane it landed
On one lovely flower
A flower of sweet fragrance
Of success and great influence
Ever faithful to bloom in season
Elegant enough to allure bees
A flower to touch the hearts of men

I owe great allegiance
To January 30th I salute
For it gave the platform
To the occurance of such a wonder
To begot a light to the world!!
