A Dime is a Sign: Poems of Love and Loss (Feelings Into Words)
2019 FAPA President's Book Award Winner - Poetry (Bronze) Synopsis: A psychic medium once said that if you find a random dime, it is a sign that someone that you have loved and lost is thinking of you. A Dime is a Sign Through Time If you find a dime, You will know that I’m Sending thoughts of love Through the veil of time. Ten cents with a silver shine, A sense sent you to help remind That someone who left you behind Is always living in your mind. Sending love and vibes, Felt as psychic sighs … The ones that you miss, Send you a kiss … Sherrill S. Cannon’s second book of poetry contains messages written through the years in poetic form that put feelings into words. As a teacher, many of her poems helped counsel troubled teens and friends. There are three sections in the book: Heads, Spinning, and Tails … (Love & Loss: Coin Toss?). The variety of lyrical poetry forms include free verse, blank verse, haiku, and sonnets, while some are just playing with words! Hopefully, this is also a book of healing.
