I'm a 5

Frail firelight flickers
on moon-pale skin, rosary -
fingers strung with stars,
small sparks of eternity.
The end comes with pure beauty.

(for Catherine)

birth date 9/14, path and destiny number 5

    I can easily see why Andrea chose this for the number one spot Charlotte. I remember thinking this would garner that position. Congratulations on your wonderful win!
