About Marie Matheny

I'm 62 and have one daughter and a granddaughter and grandson. I enjoy making quilts and scrap booking and working in my flower garden. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family. Especially my grandchildren and my pets.
I started writing poems when I was 24 after my brother-in-law died in an automobile accident. We were very close and I wrote about my grief in a poem. It was my first and I soon learned that it was therapeutic and I loved writing my thoughts and emotions in poetry. I'm not saying that it's sophisticated or anything near that but it's plain and simple and hopefully anyone reading it will understand and may be a little moved having read it.

    The Love Of Gardening

    in Flower Poems

    As she leans forward
    digging in the dirt
    Sweat rolls down her face
    and underneath her shirt

    Where cars pull off now and then

  • A Day At The Beach

    • Published: May 23, 2018

    in Beach Poems

    The sun and sand go hand in hand.
    The sound of constant waves -
    There's a smell of salt in the air.
    The ocean is seen through a haze.
