A Sonnet to Sunny

   As Memorial Day draws near, we remember dear ones who have gone before. There’s sadness at the separation, but memories of their unique qualities and their love bring great joy, as well.

 Our friend Dr. Jerry Rusher wrote this lovely poem for his wife Wanda, who went home to heaven two years ago. He and Wanda loved to hike, and the inspiration for the poem came one  morning as they watched the sun birth a rainbow in the mist of a mountain waterfall.

A Sonnet to Sunny
Dewdrops forming on the grass
Lie hidden to the watching eye,
Yet how they gleam like beads of glass,
When the sun climbs in the sky.
**
A cascade falls in shadows dim,
While a mist obscures the air
‘Til rays of light come bursting in,
And lo! There shines a rainbow fair.
**
My sunny one, you’re like the dew,
Or the misty waterfall,
As the Son comes shining through.
This quivering heart becomes enthralled,
To see reflected in your eyes 
The tender love of Jesus Christ.
