Synopsis

From Rupi Kaur, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of milk and honey, comes her long-awaited second collection of poetry. A vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestry and honoring one’s roots. Expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself.

Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. A celebration of love in all its forms.

this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year
they will teach you
that people too
must wilt
fall
root
rise
in order to bloom

I’ve anxiously waited so long for Rupi Kaur to write a second novel, I ran out the day it was released and bought myself a copy.

The Sun and Her Flowers is different from Milk and Honey in themes but the writing remains beautiful. Milk and Honey was about survival,abuse, love and femininity. Where The Sun and her flowers is about grief,self-abandonment, family history,love and empowerment. That being said I loved the first book so much more, Milk and Honey was mind blowing. I found myself struggling, even though my copy is tabbed with favorites.

I love what Rupi stands for, and how she pours so much emotions into her writing. You can feel her passion rolling off the words. This book is such powerful read. The illustration were simple and gorgeous.


Some Favorites

We are all born so beautiful,
the greatest tragedy is being convinced we’re not.

you ask
if we can still be friends
i explain how a honeybee
does not dream kissing
the mouth of a flower
and then settle for its leaves

this place makes me
the kind of exhausted that has
nothing to do with sleep
and everything to do with
the people around me
