Poems.... 

The Giver: I carry with me stones and amulets that have brought me and you the spirits of the moon, stars and sunlight. It goes into each chakra humming like a bird.
— MS
Wind: She will blow you away with her earnest affection. She will laugh and play until the very next day.
— MS
Time passes: I’m not the same. Quiet now while I think of you. Spin my umbrella round turning west, descending into soft clouds, colder into teardrops.
— MS
Listening: Her drum beats call the birds. circling as the wind moves with her breath. Her heart pounding as she stood in silence.
— MS
Poppy:: I have sat in fields of poppies time and time again escaping the mundane. Thinking of worlds unknown, creating work that taps into my divine. A portal where all things are limitless, freeing and carried by time.
— MS
Finding Summer :: The winds pursue me, summer soaked in my skin. Golden light lured me into the ocean, calling me solstice. sun kissing strands of my hair, tangled and salty, cleanse my body as the waves crash over me.
— MS

Books & Poetry

Writer + Poet... Maharlika Sage has been working on her first novel the last four+ years. As she expresses, It has been a time of great change, cultivating her personal style through photography. Along with finding her voice in the literary world, she has written and published several magazine articles for both health, yoga, visual effects and art magazines. In 2016, she felt inspired to create a visual concept poetry book.

Maharlika will soon be publishing a Poetry Book titled, An Undeniable Force of Nature, also known as Flowerbook... A conceptual expression of her love of flowers and nature, collaborating with creative women who are inspired by photography both professionally and personally, pairing their visuals as a framework for her poetic voice.
