Patricia Golden

Patricia Golden is a mom first, and with what time is left, she dabbles in her dreams of being a poet, writer, photographer, printmaker and performance artist. She's won awards for narrative writing and photography and her artworks hangs in the permanent collection of Brookhaven College. She's been a California surfer, a switchboard operator, a roadside mechanic, a gardener, a Texas roustabout, a cowgirl... Her poetry says it all.


Gray on White

I just love a clean sheet of paper
And a sharp pencil
I like the sound and feel of
The graphite spreading words
Across its surface
The way it looks
And... sometimes...
The way it reads
