The Hub of the Miracle
Sallie Bingham’s poems seek, always, to connect. The events of ordinary life–walking in the woods around Santa Fe, lighting a fire in a stove–merge with the crises of maturity: death and other losses. Always, the tonic is hope–the hope that springs from a stone, a stream, or a memory of childhood. These short lyrics provide inspiration for all travelers on the path. Sallie Bingham began writing poetry as a child. Her first verses, dictated to her mother, were sent to her father who was serving overseas during World War 11. Discouraged from becoming a poet by the attitude then prevailing at writing classes at Harvard, she has finally returned to her first love.
Signed copies of selected works are available directly from the author at the list price, plus $ 2.99 shipping.
