My Birthday Gift.
It's June 30th, 2021 and I am officially 49, on my own, in quarantine back home in Samoa after 5 months in New Zealand. I'm reading "My Grandfather is a Canoe", a collection of poems written by my dear friend Faumuina Felolini Maria Tafuna'i who has journeyed with me on this Misiluki voyage from the start. She wrote a poem about me which is published in her book, it is so special, fa'afetai my friend. This poem really does reflect me, I thought I would share this with you all on this special day. Have a wonderful day.
