"Sara F. Costa’s poetic creation opens the door to the revitalising of many themes, through original image-filled language in which meaningful aphorisms and epigrammatic elements co-exist. Her poetry holds in perfect balance inner and outer universes seen from many angles – be that eroticism (of body or soul) or the proximity of technology. Hers is a Multiple, Refreshing and New Poetic Voice."
