Aerobics

samuelpye  
In the shadow of my ego, 
I lay down to rest, 
get undressed, 
feel less depressed, 
ready to roar, 
I'l settle for a smile,
love and senses of belonging,
easing back and forth like an ocean, 
mood swings, 
tiredness, 
all that energy brings, 
sing, 
dance yourself into a cosmic ray, 
say sunshine, 
french kisses, 
enthusiasm of those that demand your care. 
wise words from a hole in the ground, 
people gather round, 
affections for the dead,  
bleak, 
uncouth, 
ill mannered, 
reflections of selfish decisions,
weakness of will, 
aerobic determination,

Morning, Morning

samuelpye  
A kiss, 
legitimate reasons for bliss, 
sincere approaches,
optimistic advances, 
France, 
the signature,
all the rest that went with it,
tomorrow, 
next week,
five thousand years ago, 
regret, despair, 
freedom not to care, 
civil unrest,
disposition, 
pleasant nods, 
morning and smiles, 
a newly qualified academic,
with such a lot to learn,
waivers, 
a volcano erupts, 
clouds of ash and cash, 
all mixed together in the sky, 
a lilac background and pink surprises, 
trust her smile and the warmth of the sun, 
cosmos, matter and the maker of shoes,

Round

samuelpye  
Like a Shaman,
I shake the tree,
I dance beside her,
she dances beside me,
in the centre of a square,
of family and friends,
though plenty of space,
for centre stage,
the beginning of time,
a coming of age,
filthy and hot,
we danced such a lot,
through lack of sleep,
excitement grows,
a need to find answers,
to what nobody seems to know,
or was it that I  just wouldn't listen,
so determined for my own version of events,
I rest and restart,
somewhere near the beginning,
the strangest thing about this very moment,
is that in the context of infinity,
it may have happened infinite times,
I do still enjoy pretty pleasant colours,
and all manner of intriguing and exciting things,

Argue

samuelpye  
Heads swelling beyond cognition,
booming voices of conflict,
please leave me in peace,
do not disturb the pheasants,
you will find no peace in justice,
or justice in peace,
distance is soothing,
space,
chemical compromise,
pleasure leaves me alone,


Diversity

samuelpye  
I discover,
I begin to see,
what is diversity,
what it means to me,
carried away,
lost in thought,
everything taught,
repercussions,
smiled upon,
warmed gently with the Sun,
celebrate your cruelty,
beat your drum,
calling,
wishing away,
kind free spirit,
unguarded sentiment,
contentment,
harmony,
idols and threats,


Seagulls

samuelpye  
In the solitude of the night, 
his face turned to stone, 
as dawn came the sun cracked expressions the darkness lacked,
seagulls remind me of the shoreline,
beaches where my sandcastles lay beneath a thin warm layer of sea water, 
love comes like the tide,
I hold the mane of my horse and hang on for the ride, 
looking through the tall grass, 
glimpses of the confines of my perspective,
held firm by frustration and comfort,

Hector

samuelpye  
She rose,
from the sum of his flaws,
the horse the boy could not tame,
though mutual respect he did gain,
walking side by side,
companions,
relinquish control,
accepting the others soul,
appreciation,
weak but not discouraged,
they live as one,

Wood

samuelpye  
Tomorrow carries,
on the back of yesterday,
stars twinkle, 
behind blankets of cloud,
earth moves silently round,
descendants beckon me to the future,
ancestors call me home,
kind faces keep me warm,
sitting on the shore,
at the feet of the mountains,
watching a peaceful exchange,
tide gives and takes away,
leaving on the beach,
whilst washing away,
taking out to sea,
and bringing to land,
trees stand firm and sway,
once drifting,
chose to stay,
