Another comment

I received my copy yesterday and was delighted to see that one of my poems, The Winds of Winter Blew Their Blast, had been included. It´s always a thrill to see your work published, and even more so in a creative writing magazine as you are conscious that the quality of what you have written has been deemed good enough to be read by your peers. I am certain that Platinum Page will continue to grow and find its foothold in a niche market and more writers discover a magazine where they can be given opoportunities to improve their writing skills. Vivienne has done a a brilliant job in launching the magazine in these difficult times and each issue is better than the last, and I feel very proud to be in at the start of something special. Well done vivienne, you deserve all the praise you have received in this blog site. A huge hug from Spain :-)

David Urion.

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
