In the quest for Olympic gold, Africa must be a favourite for the Breaking of Day competition….
Her sunrises can be fast or slow, gradual or intense – but always a small miracle of nature.
Animals know that dawn will conquer night’s darkness, announcing the new day.
On the banks of rivers, birds will sing their praises, celebrating, calling, chirping in the misty light filtering through the haze.
And man will, like he must, rekindle last night’s embers to brew a mug of coffee.
Others aren’t so spoilt – a long, cool, drink will slake that night-thirst just as well.
Jep…Africa should be assured of a podium finish – even the King thinks so.
