Hints of Feb/March

Steve Taylor kicks off Platinum Page with his very funny account of becoming a first time dad in Fatherhood. The food cravings, the panic, and helping out at childbirth classes...

Fatal Bedtime Drink, a tale of a lost book, a letter, and love. It could be nothing else but a case of 2+2=5...

Number One - Make List, is a fabulous story about a lady who takes charge of everything and relies on lists. A very poignant story.

The Green Door of Time. If you could meet anyone at all in the history of the world, who would you choose? For one man, the choice was easy.

With Intent. A story with a sensational twist at the end. A celebratory cruise is the setting for Maggie and Ian...

William Spring and the Dukes Agent. Let's hear it for the underdog! When the situation seems dire, a little bit of thinking and a lot of hard work, saves the day!

Face the Music and Dance, continuing the serial with Peter. Peter is in hospital when he receives an unexpected visitor, with a shocking proposal.

A visit to the World Trade Centre, comes next, and a rather unfortunate event with a bottle of aftershave...

The magazine ends with three poems, all very different styles, and all very descriptive.

Happy Reading!

  3. Good to be back, thanks for your support Vivienne. It sounds like Platinum Page is off to a great start, good luck.

  4. Hey don't tell them too much.....


An inspired poem

Dear Vivienne
inspiration from your blog picture
A Camera’s Eye View

Looking into a picture, starting from top left
The crows nests in the tree tops, gray sky’s causing silhouettes.

Following down the left hand edge, bare branches topped with snow
Tree trunks for all of us to see, as black as any crow.

Houses nestled in the woodland, roofs and chimneys tall
The evergreen of the fir trees, masking most, but not them all.

Let the eye drop down the river bank, small bushes all aglow
Standing proudly in the ground, topped off with winter snow.

The shallow water still and silent, bed rocks sticking through
Dark reflections of the trees, and individual branches too.

Suddenly a burst of light, of sunshine and of blue
Reflected in the river Tyne, intended just for you.

Feel that inspiration, as you stare in fascination
I’m glad you took your camera, and captured this creation

Ray Johnson.
looking forward to the mag best wishes
