Welcome to my Profile . Sometimes it would seem that I do have so much more 'not to say' than 'to say'....but, I might be wrong! A French Contemporary Poet writing in both French and English (in which language do I dream - well both of course and, at the same time - a little madness maybe?) The literary trail from France to Italy and the USA where during a number of years, worked on Poetry Recitals, Acting, Screenplay writing and giving lectures Came to the UK in 2003 to continue writing Poetry (2 volumes published so far in dual language) lectures, reference work and currently working on a first novel set in 1960's France - a thriller. Also wish to publish one day my Journal. Won awards in both languages and, have been published in Literary magazines USA, France and UK Poetry of the absurd, with a fascination for the unconscious mind stimulating much of the work. 'les mots semblent exister pour nous rappeler la tâche désespérée d'exprimer l'inexprimable' The invitation by the late David Burland to judge the David Burland Poetry prize since 2008 up to and including 2016 has been a real honour. The 2016 prize results are now announced. A second anthology 'Poetic Art' / L'Art Poétique edited by myself with all winners since 2013 is anticipated for release 2017 Details will be announced eventually at: www.davidburlandliteraryservices.com www.annaburland.com my third dual language (French/English)collection both hardback and recording is currently under way ( 'In our Veins' / 'Dans nos Veines') When not writing I find Chess a tonic to unwind and recharge . Music, egyptology, philosophy and cosmology are other interests. Find me at www.michel-françois.com
extracts from published work REVIVAL (extract) Revive my pain, and yet again Bizarre vision cradles those curves within Pursued passion fashioning our doctrine IN SOLITUDE (extract) In solitude prowling as powers persist Flesh dribbling from the torn light to rot outside Agony's sunflowers massing ready to resist A suffering's ultimate and turbulent tide CONFLUX Une lèvre de matière fait la moue un corps se nie à sa naissance dans un hameau charmant de l'ariège une thomise tangue....tisse sa toile l'embrasure d'une porte tend un piège au scintillement d'étoiles
