POETRY – SOLO MEDALIST WINNER

A Penny for Your Thoughts

by Sherrill S. Cannon

The variety of lyrical poetry forms in this collection include free verse, blank verse, haiku, & sonnets. The book suggests the spinning of a coin with “Love & Loss: Coin Toss?” and is organized into three sections: “Heads, Of Love and Friendship”, “Spinning, Of Related Emotions”, and “Tails, of Heartache and Anguish”.  In poetic terms, this book speaks of beauty, nature, sadness, and gladness.  The soothing words offer an uplifting message to readers everywhere. These heartfelt poems were compiled over many years by a former teacher and award-winning author who states. “As a teacher, I used poetry to help counsel many troubled teens and friends, and have continued this pattern throughout the years.” Feathered Quill reviews deemed it “a book of healing”.
