Two Poems by Angela Porter

Birds on a Wire

When they are gathered
Along the telephone wires
I stop and wonder.
Are they counting their numbers?
In silent conversations?

Bird Song

Bird as pen on score
He writes in a freedom sky
Of his expansion.
I hear a silent music,
And soundly I am sleeping.


Sweeping into the PROMS performances last year, Angela has recognition as a composer. An earning poet since 2003, many single poems appear in the Indigo Dreams Publishing poetry magazines, and one booklet of poetry. More Tanka poems may appear in “Reach Poetry” this year.
