Long Beach - Poem by Gert Strydom

On long beach
we swam in the cold water
before walking up to the wreck
of the Kakapo
which were covered with sand
with pieces of rusting iron
sticking out
like a big skeleton
and a round semi-circle at the back.

The sand was soft
and white under our feet
with Chapman's Peak and Noordhoek
towering up above us,
within walking distance.
