Keep it alive


Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

Soul for sale for a few pennies

Morals, values, principles all

Just give me a generous offer

I will trade my essence at a bargain

My love of money and all the luxuries

It can buy, overpowers my scruples and principals

I want to look after only the number one

The rest are of no value to me at all


How unwise were my choices, how unworthy

Now with all the money in my possession

I cannot trade peace of mind or serenity of spirit

Take this money and return my soul to me

An Attempted Coup of The United States of America

charles french words reading and writing

I was going to do a post on writing today, but with what is happening in Washington, D.C., I have to speak about this insanity.

I will start by saying that I support peaceful protest of all kinds, because it is guaranteed in our Constitution, but I never support protest that is violent, including from those with whom I agree politically. Violent protest is never acceptable. Please do not reply by comparing today’s actions to other protests; as I stated, I disagree with all violent protests. Besides that would be like a child saying “Well, he did it, so I am too.” The logic is ridiculous.

What is happening today, though, is far worse than violent protest. By breaching the Capitol and disrupting the Constitutional work of the government, these people, who were incited by President Trump have committed many federal crimes and are committing insurrection. They are attempting to…

Waterfall (On Writer’s Block)

Please Read This and Save it to remember to not rely only on your experiences but on Your Imagination!!


On Writer’s Block:

You don’t need to be a murderer to write a bestselling murder novel. You don’t even need to be an alien to write from the point of view of one.

You don’t even need to stripper to write about the life of a stripper.

That is absurd and pathetic.

Your imagination will take you to where you wanna be.

To simply put it you don’t need to be in a romantic relationship to write the most romantic love poem.

Lang Leav said “The only thing you have to do as a writer is to write. It’s about your work – it’s not about your lifestyle.”

So, if your poetry and (writing in general) is limited to your experiences then I guess you have not reached yet your full potential as a poet, as a writer.

Here is a love poem for you all…

Reintroducing Me

Please Come And Read!


Reintroducing Me

Beauty is the opposite of perfection – it’s about confidence, charisma, and character.” Anonymous

2020 has opened so many doors and opportunities for me as a poet and as a writer.

I would like to thank my loyal readers and followers especially those who have been with me in WordPress since 2013.

I can’t thank you all enough for the love and support you have given me and my poetry. You have inspired me to take my work to another level. WordPress was my virtual self for so long. For years I went by the name Michnavs- a name I gave my blog. I started writing with just one follower.

I was Michnavs for my followers. They weren’t even sure if that is my name or just an assigned pen name.

Just Michnavs.
No name.
No profile.
No contact details.
No photo at all.

But despite…
