Faded Roses, Teary Eyes… by Gary Malone

Faded roses, teary eyes and broken hearts
Orange sunsets, full moons and falling stars
Cozy firesides, tender raindrops, a cool breeze
Dewy meadows, snow covered alps and stormy seas
Dusk dark, dawn, an early morning sunrise
Are facts of life, elements of surprise
Precious memories waiting to part
So are faded roses, teary eyes and broken hearts.

Gary Malone hails from Athens, Alabama and is a well-known spoken word artist and teacher. His work is regularly acclaimed for its lyrical nature, rawness and honesty. Through the art and craft of spoken word poetry, he has been able to capture the emotions and feelings of a number of issues including race and class, politics, spirituality, love, and often the heartache of life. 

A frequent guest on national blogtalk radio shows, Gary blows listeners away with his unpretentious style, skill and delivery. So please tune in for an evening of great poetry and dialogue. An open mic session will follow Mr. Malone’s reading.

I first heard Gary as a guest on the DC Poetry Project (which is going to have ME , Valeri Beers, as a guest next month).

You can hear Gary reading more of his poems on the DC Poetry Project here:
