This long-awaited second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur made waves; it was a ride brimming with of every kind of emotion imaginable. Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is 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.
Kaur’s voice is as audacious and brave as ever. She nails to perfection the specific intimate details that made her writing so achingly real in milk and honey. We have poems exploring self-love, self-hate, body-image, girls supporting girls, motherly love, feminism, insecurity, sexual assault, and so much more. I read through it in a whirlwind. I barely put it down, and it was so short I didn’t even have to.
The author’s smart, poised, and down-to-earth writing oozes inspiration. And I’m beyond eager to share some of my favorite pieces:
I’ll never grow tired of reading Kaur’s passionate words. And I hope there’s more and more to wait for in the future, regarding her poetry.
