What Is Not a Miracle
by Don Badgley
The poems in What Is Not a Miracle are centered on the spiritual realm or on the natural world—and for the author, these are often indistinguishable. The themes are deeply influenced by his life as a Friend, “Quaker.” Don Badgley offers these poems as a glimpse of one man’s corporeal and spiritual journey. It is his hope that “these small poetic offerings may kindle recognition of the Light within each of us and so affirm the infinite, eternal and unchangeable Ground of Being that is our universal Source.”
