A Dime is a Sign is a companion volume to A Penny for Your Thoughts, and is also an attempt to put feelings into words. If you’ve ever loved, been loved, been confused about love, or suffered from loss of love, then you may find your own feelings in this book.

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.
