Noordhoek Beach

Noordhoek Beach by Angela Prew

A soft Autumn Sunday
no wind to whirl the sand,
stinging, against our legs, a day for dog walks and dogs there are,
big dogs,
small, yappy dogs,
guard dogs and lap dogs
walking their owners briskly over the sand.
Away towards Kommetjie
a knot of horses walk
at their riders’ pace
itching for a gallop. On the breaking waves
surfers, wet-suited, ride.
And you and I
chatting idly
enjoy the gentle sun
and the freedom,
after so many weeks,
so many relatives,
to be ourselves.
