“Soulmates aren’t the ones
who make you happiest, no.
They’re instead the ones
who make you feel the most.
Burning edges and scars and stars.
Old pains and pangs,
captivation and beauty.
Sweetness and madness
and dreamlike surrender.
They hurl you into the abyss.
They taste like hope.”
“When you spoke,
the light surrounded you,
ribbons of silver and of gold.
Minutes fell off the clock
slipping away and
fading into smooth floors,
through open doors.
A pull drew me to you,
Two opposite poles.
Like burning sun
and cold rain
to make green things
“You should (always)
gaze up at the seas of stars
opening our nights
and remember again and again
that you’re in an awesomely
vast and wild universe
where nearly anything
and at any given time.
When our perspectives shift,
so do our hearts.”
“Elemental. Soul-soothing. Necessary. Victoria’s words are a breath of fresh air to the sensitive and weary life traveler. An invitation to step over the edge and face our truest selves, get reacquainted with the disowned pieces of us, and let ourselves fall in love with the wonder within.”
—ANDREA BALT, Founder, Rebelle Society, Creative Rehab, Write Yourself Alive
“Victoria has captivated and enchanted our audience at Rebelle Society. An eloquent word-devi, her expression is ecstatically beautiful and describes the natural magic and poetic language of Earth and the human experience.”
—TANYA MARKUL, co-founder of Rebelle Society, creator of Thug Unicorn By Tanya Markul & YogaWriteNow.org
“Victoria’s prose makes the mundane, the to-dos, the realisms of everyday life feel like Sunshine. Her work is like honey-dipping you and allowing you to fall as she catches you on the next line. I’ve spent hours lost in her work. There isn’t such thing as “enough.” She encourages the artist to write, the lover to love and for every human on this world to quench their thirst by living.”
—JANNE ROBINSON, writer and poet at JanneRobinson.com
“This collection of Victoria Erickson’s poetry calls out to readers’ souls, past lovers’ hearts, the forces of Nature and everything else that has shaped her… to say, ‘Come and look at what a kick-ass, amazing world we’ve got here!’ And it’s clear, through her eyes and her poems, she is telling the truth… in spades.”
—VALERIE GANGAS, Author of Enlightenment Is Sexy: Every Woman’s Guide to a Magical Life
“Victoria writes whispers that are soft yet strong, wanted and needed, confronting but comforting. Her work is like a diary your heart wrote and if strong hugs were words, they would be hers.”
—JEREMY GOLDBERG, Founder, Long Distance Love Bombs
“Anais Nin said writing was how she managed to “capture the living moments,” and our writing our souls out is saving thousands of women on the path. Victoria is one of those wonders whom I can’t even recall when we met, or if there was even a time at all when I didn’t know her. We share a mutual love of nature’s wisdom, poetic thought, and claiming our wildness, refusing to be tamed. She’s a bright light for thousands of women walking the awakening path, and where her pen goes, we all follow, finding our own voice.”
—SARAH DURHAM WILSON, Founder, Do it Girl, Author of DOITGIRL diaries
“Victoria’s words are like soft bookends to the moments of our lives. They hold the moment together with fresh truth, raw honesty and the kind of beauty that comes with opening your eyes, like the first time, every time. With the exasperation of “time flying” by a culture built around speed, her prose reminds and allows us to breathe and be, to notice and to reflect, to source love from the infinite well of our soul and rest in the freedom that lives there—even for just one moment.”
—JESSICA DURIVAGE-KERRIDGE, Founder, Where is My Guru Virtual Center for Higher Learning
“Victoria Erickson has a gift for evocatively transforming the ordinary into the sheer magic of poetic musing, while bringing to life all the many nuances and shades of feeling. Edge of Wonder is full of invigorating reminders to courageously embrace our heartfelt longings, and to never again abandon our deepest passions. This book is alive with daily inspiration!”
—SUSAN FRYBORT, Author of Hope is a Traveler
