is its highlight
Elizabeth Squires

the opening fold of sunlight
dawns with delight
o'er the bush land
tis a scene grand

bright rays of radiance do beam  
on hills and stream
shining of glints
lovely the tints  

the sun doth light up the countryside
with its preside
dazzling of sight
is its highlight

*highlight of the mystery*
Mike Hauser

this girl is the perfect tomorrow
the better thoughts of yesterday
the soft spot that's right
between day and night
highlight of the mystery

she is the tapping into time
which brings about the here and now
she is what is felt by most
that never let go
she is all that is allowed

she is both the salt and sweet
the need, wanting desire
the whisper of the truth
when it grabs hold of you
the center of the fire

she is the late into the day
the slight hint that's on the breeze
the meaning in sound
when no ones around
highlight of the mystery

highlight every piece of bush
Elizabeth Squires

the sun's dazzling rays
highlight every piece of bush
in a bright burnish

You were the highlight of

You were the highlight of
my unreasonable being,
you never realized how
much I loved you.
You were the highlight of
my days and nights,
and feeling loved was
the only feeling I felt.
You were the highlight of
everything I wanted and
needed so bad,
you knew what you meant
to me you just didnt care.

he shadows of the grotesque.............highlight the beauty;
Indie Rodd

From grief.....................closure grows;
From pain......................experience grows.

The shadows of the grotesque.............highlight the beauty;
The shadows of loss ............................highlight the value.

Blood is the fire of both destruction............ and creation,
From the ashes of life will be born.

Fear is irreconcilable,
Don’t let it wreck the balance.


steamed to highlight
Life's Jump

a lipstick kiss
left your pain dripping red
smudged glowing
heart shaped lips
on my window
imprints of finger tips surrounded
words that read
never again!
steamed to highlight
your tone

a highlight in the life of a coffee table.

Occasionally adorned
with glasses of brandy
and appletart and cream;
while cigars are passed around
stimulating very good storytelling -

a highlight in the life of a coffee table.

you're the highlight of this hour
Jan 8

This class is boring
you're the highlight of this hour
let’s continue this

Your shoes are groovy
your character wonderful
I’m sure there is more

You free after class?
to learn more about each other?
smoothie of coffee?

I gave this to a girl after class because we had been talking for a while. We did get coffee and she turned out to be really cool, but she moved away. :/
If the **highlight** of your life

If the highlight of your life
Some guy.
Or girl.

What the hell kind if life will you have?

Highlight reel.

Empty and cold
Numb I feel.
Life's a backwards
Highlight reel.
Highlight the real
moments in time.
When time to time
love shows itself.
An intangible wealth
found by the blind.

acting, hoping, searching.
Acting without thought
Hoping ignorance is bliss
Searching for the

The power to change your fate.
but if ignorance is bliss,
then knowledge is power.

It creates a paradox in which
intelligence and happiness cannot coexist.

We're doomed from the start
and the end games unclear.

Makes me wonder,
why I'm even here.
