Light Again

The following poem was inspired by a real-life event while house sitting for a dear friend. Sometimes we forget about the joy in our lives until we are shocked into remembering – whether that be a past pet, a former love or a fun experience. When we come across those memories, we are reminded of the kindness and fun in the world.


I went looking for matches
And found a bird
Mummified for remembrance

No shoe box burial
For your avian friend
But like a past joy

Every once in awhile
We come across it
Held in a dark drawer

And then we remember
That others brought love
And there is light again

Victoria Fritz has been a logophile for all of her life. Her love of words evolved into a love of writing poetry in the last two years. Never having been a poetry reader (until now!), Victoria finds writing in poetic form a natural way to process and express her inner workings and is hopeful that some of what she writes resonates with others. If you enjoy her work, you can check her out on Instagram. Victoria tries to post daily, but also tries to be gentle with herself when that doesn't happen. Some days she is kinder to herself than others, but with inspiration from Kind Over Matter it's getting easier.
