POETIC CHAPTERS OF WILD SELF LOVE
by Sara Rogers
You are a living, blessing prayer
Upon the altar of breath and bone,
When you are of service to this prayer
You are in service to the whole world.
Elemental Magic, poetic chapters of wild self love, is a collection of poetry and prose, inviting the reader on a journey into the wild within to know a closer presence of love, belonging, and identity.
Each chapter embodies the elements to retrieve, reclaim, restore, and voice the soul of a woman's inherent worth and interconnectedness with nature.
A poetic honouring prayer to a woman's body, transformation, and wisdom, this book is rooted in the Great Mother's love, who longs for the feminine to rise, live, and protect the sacredness of all life.
Provoking, vulnerable, and soulfully naked, Elemental Magic will inspire the greatest power patriarchy has attempted to convince women to forget; the power of nature within and as themselves.
More than ever the earth is seeking your return.

She began to believe that everything had always been as it should.
She began to know, whether full or empty,
She was complete.
Casually came the days
When nothing outside of Herself
Her place of enough
~ pg.119 from the Chapter Moonbeams
ABOUT the author
Sara is a word witch that explores the edge of consciousness to deconstruct the story behind the veil of cultural expectations and illuminate the intrinsic connection and communication that transcends and transforms from being close with the elements and the mystery of life.
This is Sara's first self-published poetry collection. She was recently published in Pivot & Pause: An Anthology (2020), by poet Azure Antionette and international best selling author Elizabeth Gilbert. Sara's poetry was also published in Unsettling Inner Landscapes: Critical Spirituality & The Poverty of Whiteness (2020) by author Aleyah-Erin Lennon.
from the author
My wish for my writing is that it serves as an anecdote to the lonely heart; the heart that wonders how it may find wild beauty and grace amidst heartbreak within ourselves, our planet, and humanity.
I think of how writing poetry and being moved by other poets has often felt like a surge of familiar electricity plugged into a stream of consciousness we all know and ache to be a part of; something that feels like you're communing with the soul; the one that sounds like the truth you've always known.
I hope my words carry a thread of truth you may find familiar; that you have touched before and now again.
Thank you for being here.
from the readers
"This anthology of poems speaks a universal language of heart, soul and wild nature. Each poem acts as a guide to (re)awaken the wild self love within.
Sara's words land as art in my body and serve as a mirror into discovering and remembering truths and wisdom that live inside me."
"Hidden within these pages are elemental truths foundational for every woman. Even though each of us are living vastly unique lives, Sara's words sing soul truths back into being, in our bodies and in our hearts.
These poems remind us on an individual and collective level of who we came here to be, a blazing beacon of wild elemental wisdom and embodies Love.
I found myself within these pages, and you will too."

"Sara has captured and incubated scrapes of sacred, whispers of rapture, and inklings of insight in the cauldron of her heart, tenderly crafting them from the roots of her soulbody into an offering of pure love and poetic daring. We find here a magic mirror and an enchanted path meant to spark our memory and ignite the transformative power of our imagination.
What I love most about this collection is the commitment to integrity, courage, and revolution in service of Land and Life that permeates its pages.
May we hear this, yet another Sister's call, for us to awaken and unite!"
