These pages are for anyone who enjoys the brevity and concise nature of poems, with their ability to distill sometimes complex thoughts and issues into a succinct and manageable format. Sometimes funny, sometimes not, the process of using less words to say more is challenging, and a challenge I really enjoy!  Without overstating it, this process has helped to keep me 'relatively ' sane and certainly put a smile on my face and kept me busy.  ​

On this site you will find a small selection of poems that have been created and inspired through personal observations and experiences, some taken from my book 'The Path to Redemption', but new ones are being added all the time.  I take commissions to produce bespoke writings and performances for occasions such as Weddings, Galas, Birthday celebrations, Corporate events and funerals.


I hope that you find something here that resonates with you, be that to smile, cry, laugh or sigh. Everything is subjective and therefore relevant to someone... I hope that someone is you.

Amazon Reviews

"Lovely book, sensitive & funny too

The poet Lyric is clearly a deeply sensitive and insightful person with an ability to express feelings and reflections in verse. Both internal reflections on the human condition and humorous, well-observed dissections of our contemporary world make this a delightful read. Bravo! "

"Lyrick Pulls it off

Having heard Lyrick perform one of his poems I decided to buy the Golden Goose and allow me to sample more of the gems of thought
I was not disappointed at all.  It's easy reading but very deep thoughts which meander like the local river through emotion both happy and sad but always truthful"

"Poetry in  (e)motion

I really love this book! I can imagine some of the poems as songs; they would be perfect. Others draw you in with a fantastic twist at the end, it is an ideal coffee table book to dip into whenever you have a quiet moment."
