About June Nash, The Poet

Self Portrait

Digital Self Portrait, using SketchBookExpress


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.

    HI June, love the digital self portrait. How did you do that; It looks like a nice watercolor?

      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!
