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.

Sherrill S. Cannon, a former teacher and grandmother of ten, is the author of nine acclaimed rhymed children’s books, plus a recent award-winning book of poetry (A Penny for Your Thoughts), which together have received 63 national and international book awards since 2011. She also wrote seven published plays for elementary school children that have been performed in over 25 countries. Most of her children’s books emphasize consideration for others. Married for 58 years, she and her spouse are now retired, live in Pennsylvania, and travel in their RV from coast to coast, spending time with their children and grandchildren, and sharing her books along the way!

Lovely Tribute for A Dime is a Sign by Linda Weaver Clarke

I am so thrilled and honored by this thoughtful tribute to my poetry by author Linda Weaver Clarke... Such a distinction and honor to be compared to Elizabeth Barrett Browning!!!

Romantic Poetry Tribute

Romantic Poetry During a Romantic Time of Year

One of my favorite poets is Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Her poetry is so romantic. With each sentence, I feel the message of love. She writes from the heart and that is why I love her poetry. Elizabeth’s beautiful Sonnets (Sonnets from the Portuguese) were dedicated to her husband, Robert Browning. One of my favorite poems that she wrote goes like this:

“Love me, sweet, with all thou art, Feeling, thinking, seeing. Love me in the lightest part, Love me in full being.” ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Wow! She writes from the heart. There is one other poet that I have fallen in love with. I love the poetry of Sherrill Cannon. Whenever I have to sit in the doctor’s office or wait in the car for someone, I pull her work out and soak in the words. Sherrill Cannon writes from the heart. Each of her poems differ in style and form. That’s what makes them fun to read. She has a unique and precious message for all. Her poems are delightful.

Sherrill, an Award-Winning Author, has great talent. One of my favorites from her book, A Dime is a Sign,is called “A Look.” It is written in Free Verse. In this poem, she writes: Never let that look go from your eyes… the one that stops my breath and grips my heartThat look that says “I love you” in a tone of powerful and rich intensity. This poem is simply lovely and has deep meaning. I felt as if I were spiritually fed. Let me give you another sample.

DREAM

Last night I dreamed a quiet dream of you:

We sat together, letting thoughts be shared;

An honest time, with many feelings bared;

With contact, as with touch my courage grew.

And as I left, into your arms I flew.

You held me close, and so I finally dared

To say, “I love you,” reveal how much I cared…

You smiled at me and said you loved me too.

And then my heart was filled with joyous peace

That comforted and left my soul refreshed;

And all my tense anxiety was eased,

For with your love and friendship I was blessed.

When I awoke and found that all was true,

I spent the morning thanking God for you!
