While you were sleeping

There is so much beauty happening while we are asleep…

The golden moon setting in the ocean.

The stars sparkling up above

Camps Bay nightlife music slowly fading in the background.

People leaving the clubs, alone or with someone.

Lovers emerging. Is it too late or still early?

The cold night breeze blending with the day’s hot air.

Birds fly their course.

And then, the misty morning light waking up the earth, changing features.

Soon, the beach will be packed with umbrellas and colourful bikinis.

But we are heading home to the sound of Nina Simone’s voice declaring;

“it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…

And I’m feeling not only good,

but so much more than I could ever describe in words.
