The Sun and Her Flowers eBook by Rupi Kaur | | BooktopiaDivided 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. 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. I love every poem Rupi Kaur writes and pours herself into.

One of my favourite authors. Poems that many woman can relate to. Written in a way that is easy to read and feel. Beautifully illustrated. After reading "milk and honey", I decided to give Rupi Kaur another chance with this one. There were some things I liked about "the sun and her flowers", but overall, it was a letdown.

Books of poetry should be regarded as of the most readable genre of our time. Short and simple verses, accompanied by original drawings, is very similar to the way we read through Instagram or Twitter. But some women, like Kaur, choose to violate these guidelines with purpose and intention. The guidelines, to them, are sexist — period. These caveats put some images in murky territory, leaving policy a bit confusing for users.
