A Table Mountain Sunset

The very tip of Africa under your feet, you sense the full weight
of a dark continent at your back.

Looking down at the waves below, you trace a line to the horizon,
where two oceans collide.

Past that point, no further land just water, ice, and the bottom of the world.

Close your eyes, feel the warmth of a setting sun on your face. Waves crash from a sea of gold on the rocks of Camps Bay.

And blue shadows creep across the landscape,
encasing the continent in the soft stillness of night.
