Left on the Coast

When you left I was alone but the birds still visit and together we listen to the wind and the roar of the ocean.

Strong but with a crumbling interior, I sit and wait for someone to pass.

One day you could come back to me.

but I will stay standing strong.

For I am still a home.

When People Leave

When you left, I was alone.
Strong but with a crumbling interior
I sit and wait for someone to pass. 
The birds still visit and together we listen to the wind and roar of the ocean. 
One day you could come back and 
I will stay standing strong.
For I am still a home.

Along the coast from Tarifa to Algeciras are a series of abandonded buildings. Their structures were built strong but without the love of their keepers, their interiors became empty.

This walk takes you along cliff tops from which you can clearly see mama Africa. One of my favorite places in this area.
