Carolyn Matheny, or CJ as she prefers to be called, began her love of poetry by writing songs, some 30 years ago. This love affair began with songs of praise and singing them in church while playing an acoustical guitar.
“Where words become roses for the heart™,” which has become CJ’s theme, was born out of her love of roses and her love for words. This symbolic meaning is that roses have always been the symbol of love.
