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
in order to bloom
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Milk and Honey, Rupi Kaur’s self-published debut, was the rarest of sensations: a poetry collection that sold millions. Two years and one 25th birthday later, she returns with The Sun and Her Flowers, a slender volume that spotlights the ways Kaur has matured. Fans of her spare, deeply personal poems—which sweep from heartache and trauma to recovery and empowerment—will find much to admire and relate to here, but Kaur's also keen to investigate experiences outside of her own. The verses about her mother’s arranged marriage and fragmented English are particularly rich in feeling and empathy.

There is never a poem that doesn’t shake me to my core. I love every poem Rupi Kaur writes and pours herself into. Definitely a fantastic read.
This poetry book is definitely in my top three! I loved the poet’s use of imagery and words. Her sketches and drawings provided a much more beautiful experience.
As someone who doesn’t understand that much poetry this book speaks to me. it’s so relatable and realistic. by far my favorite book by this author. definitely give it a go. you won’t be disappointed
