About Me and My Poetry

I wrote a poem for my daughter and new son-in-law and read it at their wedding reception in 1997. People have been encouraging me ever since. I try to write up-beat and happy poetry. My poetry has been in many anthologies, newspapers, church bulletins,etc. I won a small contest once. I self-published some small(4x5)books with about 16 poems in each that can be used as greeting cards. I include an envelope for mailing. Check them out on my FB page under Jean Magill Gorney.

Because nothing great you think you’ve done.

Trying to get from one place to another in your yard?

Everything I see is hazy; I feel like I’m walking in a fog.
Something is in my eye, but it can’t be the proverbial log.

A book I have read;
It’s almost time for bed.

Dreams are memories we share with the night.
Some can bring comfort and others fright.
