Overview

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

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

About the Author

rupi kaur is a bestselling author and illustrator of two collections of poetry. her artistic expression began at the age of 5 when her mother handed her a paintbrush and said—draw your heart out. while studying at the university of waterloo rupi self-published her first collection milk and honey in 2014. milk and honey became an international phenomenon that's been translated into over 30 languages and sold over 2.5 million copies. rupi's long-awaited second collection the sun and her flowers was published in 2017 and immediately debuted as a #1 global bestseller. through her poetry rupi explores a variety of themes ranging from love. loss. trauma. healing. femininity. migration. revolution. 

rupi is a storyteller and chronicler. there’s a simplicity and nuance to her work that has found a home in the hearts of millions. this magic is best captured in her stage performances which are magnetic musical interactions of poetry art and theatre. in the years to come rupi hopes to continue her artistic exploration through art and poetry—searching for ways to understand and articulate the world around her.

Rupi Kaur has been one of my favorite poets since Milk and Honey. Her writing style is so unapologetic and raw. She never fails to bring me to my knees in tears. This book is my therapy. She is my therapy and everyone should read this book to heal their heart.

There are not many writers today that can evoke the range of emotions that Rupi Kaur does in this book. You can hear the sounds of the refugee camp, smell the flowers of her mother's garden, and feel her pain as she writes about what happened to her. We live in a world where we over share the frivolous things in life but refuse to be real and honest with ourselves and with others. It is refreshing to read a work that truly touches the soul.

extremely unoriginal treatment of common ideas—grade-school level poetry.

After reading milk and honey by rupi kaur, I knew that I had to get my hands on, the sun and her flowers . I just picked it up today and read it in one sitting. This book is so beautiful, just like milk and honey, and I am in love with rupi kaurs work.

Similar to Milk and Honey, the other book written by Rupi Kaur. Both amazing, emotionally in-depth books I honestly don't have worda to describe the way it made me feel. My heart ached and clung to every word.
