Lauries poetry readings


Here’s Laurie reading his poems at a local event. Laurie thrills and entertain at many locations promoting his books while raising money for Help for Heroes.

“I’d love to come and read at your event, just drop me a line below and we’ll work it out”.

Poetic Seeds to Fruition

Once again Laurie brilliantly covers all aspects of life in his unique down to earth style, now becoming increasingly popular.

His emotive and arousing poems resonate with many readers as the nerve tingling reflective journeys touch their inner depths.

This bumper book is Laurie’s eighth in only six years, so something of a milestone celebration for him. Demonstrating a flourished ability, it also includes some of his newspaper column articles and poems.

Proudly produced by Bad Goose Publishing, The Psychy Poet, Laurie’s alias due to his expansive career working in psychiatry, is now ever widely appreciated with poems read by a local, national, and even international audience, featuring on radio stations as well as in magazines and other publications.

POETRY CORNER – 13/06/2020

Today’s poem is by the Irrepressible Laurie Wilkinson of Eastbourne, East Sussex. who sent this funny poem in after reading about my snoring pug dog keeping everyone awake.
Poet Laurie’s son served in the military for 10 years, and the proud dad has been donating everything he makes from his book sales to Help for Heroes since his first in 2014. The former East ender just had his eighth book published, available from and shows no signs of flagging…

Laurie has since had yet another poem published in the paper!

The Daily Mirror Newspaper 

Barely Heard

Ted and Beth are very happy
Contented bears and not bores,
Only now there is a little problem
Beth has told me that Ted snores!
So she is now quite desperate
To have a peaceful night.
For every time she drops off,
Ted’s snort gives her a fright.

He says it’s all an exaggeration
That many male bear’s growl,
But Beth is getting very angry,
And may smother him with a towel.
So there has to be a solution to,
This noise that comes from Ted.
For Beth states that if it continues
He must sleep in the spare bed.

Now that’s the way they managed
With no arguments, no pain.
Until both of them got lonely,
And had to sleep together again.

Write a Poem for You

Get Laurie to write you a poem for that special occasion.

Poetic Seeds to Fruition

Some poetic thoughts I had
Became seeds I then planted,
And began to grow strongly
But I didn’t take it for granted. 

Though words and poems flowed
In almost endless, florid streams.
And formed various topic notions
Far beyond my wildest dreams. 

As a down to earth and everyday
Style of poetic life expressions,
Burst into fruition and fulfilment
Tabling the world’s confessions

Laurie Wilkinson is a poet with a difference, he shares his amazing talent to raise money for the charity ‘Help for Heroes’.

Laurie’s poems are truly fantastic, accurately portraying today’s world in a modern, eloqent way. His skill for the written word is impressive, both deep, thoughtful and insightful.

Drawn from personal experience and an amazing observation of life itself, Laurie’s poems are filled with humour, emotion and always eye-wateringly honest! His books are now a firm favourite in our household.

I would urge anyone who morally confers gratitude on his efforts to support Laurie, and this utterly worthy cause, by buying his books of Poetry. Not only do they reflect the ‘Zeitgeist’, they give cause for reflection in so many ways in our complicated age. Laurie does much to rebalance the Holistic ‘Right’ brain in its’ battle with the materialistic ‘Left brain’, and all at a cost below their value.’

All profits go to the ‘Help For Heroes Charity’, and his willingness to give Poetry Readings to interested audiences is to be applauded, and much in demand.

All Revealed

There may be nostalgia and surprises
When your inner world is revealed,
By the peeling away of barriers
That many secrets had concealed.

For everyone has private thoughts
Perhaps buried deep and never seen,
But confronted by observing words
You may learn what they can mean.

So allow perceptive insights in
To a world where they are known,
As it may be comforting to discover
Some fears are not yours alone.
