Feather Flame Firecracker

Feather Flame Firecracker

Sparkler to Suncatcher
I opened a soul treasure box 
She glowed as a sparkler that transformed into firecracker
Where her light did not dissipate
Instead became a watercolor rainbow
Worthy of museum honor
Her beauty a constellation…
Her mouth a milky way while her eyes are stars that sway
Wispy winds wind onyx curls from her glittering grace of her face
Harmony hands flashed fingernails of fancy
Her accent accentuates ringing bells of a divine choir
Many men pursed her for she pranced as a ballerina through the seasons of birth, blossom and bequeathing change
Men also desired to download her like a phone app
She strove forward through sideways and subways of New York
Outside she flashed like a feminine fantasy
Though thorns of sadness and shadows stewed within her
She acquired imaginative ideas of inspiration
Where her soul light released regal rays
I breathed in her sunset
Our friendship formidable
Communication of chapters with baking books filled with
Spices of speaking love
With exuberance she expressed exalted joy over her children
Melted into motherhood she molted into ethereal happiness
Aura of her son with his potent presence of mastering Into manhood with music, sports and love of family 
Jewels of her eldest daughter's jovial art drawings and designing clothes
Her youngest daughter with her atmosphere of culinary cooking 
Her children cultivate a combination with a trinity of a blazing bond
She sparkled all with her soul seeds
The outside world and our inner spirits
As she grew with gems of germination 
She sprouted forth with strengthening sunshine

"Wispy winds wind onyx curls from her glittering grace of her face Harmony hands flashed fingernails of fancy" Your beautiful words display her in glory so fine, I feel I do not know her, because she is uniquely unique. Well done, Chantelle. Great imagery!
