About June Nash, The Poet

Self Portrait

Digital Self Portrait, using SketchBookExpress

Poetry

Writing poetry, started at twelve
After that, dared not delve
Compared myself to my peers
My confidence lagged. . . for years

Mine were trite, all concealing.
Theirs deep, too revealing.
Sensitive, fragile, I was then,
would not put my heart to pen.

Today tales I have a lot
Too old to care if out they got.
Living with flair, have full life.
Time to share internal strife.

June Nash

I love writing poetry. It relaxes me.  My poems are a reflection of my life, interests and feelings.

I write for fun.  I hope you have as much fun reading these poems as I have writing them.

I will post every Thursday until I reach my goal of posting 300 poems.  If, on the rare occasion,  I get too busy with life, to write new poems, I will either repost one of my favorites or post a guest poem.

Thanks for visiting!

    Awesome poem about poetry, encapsulated the emotions of it beautifully.
    It is also wonderful to see the marvelous self-portrait on this page too. That’s something I’m neither brave nor skilled enough to do yet…

      Thank you! I was offered this award several months ago, but I was very busy and, even though I intended to accept it, time passed. I am honored that you feel me worthy of this award. I will accept, and do my best to carry it on.

      Thanks! I used a program called Sketch Book Express on my Apple computer. It gives you various brushes to work with. I painted it using those brushes, controlling it with my touch pad.
      I’m glad you liked it!

    I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a blog award. There’s no pressure or anything you don’t even have to accept if you don’t want to. I just wanted you to know that I love your poetry, and I thought of you when I was nominating people. Keep up the lovely poems! Here’s the link to the nomination, http://greencheata.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/fantastic-friday-2/
