The Sun and Her Flowers
Elyse

Beautiful...

The range of emotions are all felt ... sadness, anger, loss, grief, pride, guilt, fear, nervousness, shame, joy, surprise, love ....

These stories/ poems are heartfelt...

rupi kaur is a lovely gift to the world.

“for so long i was lost in a place where there was no sun, where there grew no flowers. but something i loved would emerge and bring me to life again”.

I love “Milk and Honey”...

and I equally love “the sun and her flowers”. The one complaint is that I wanted to buy this book

4.25 STARS!!!!

“I hear a thousand kind words about me and it makes no difference yet I hear one insult and all confidence shatters - focusing on the negative."

This quote was like a punch in a gut. I felt guilt, shame, and realization when I read it because honestly, I am like that.

Rupi Kaur did it again. Her brutally honest poems stirred up something inside me. A year ago, I read milk and honey and I was quite surprised of how personal, vulgar and relatable it was. But this book? I personally

This was really beautiful and brutal! I totally confess I haven't read poetry in like...forever. I'm kind of terrified of it?! I generally don't "get it" and spent my entire highschool life learning to sprint in order to get away from it. Tbh I'm a great sprinter now so things work out wow go me.

However, I really did want to give this a go when I was sent it for review and I'm really really glad I did! It's like so empowering and the words were pretty and like?!?? I think I really like this typ

it isn't what we left behind

that breaks me

it's what we could've built

had we stayed.


Grief, self abandoment, the bond between a child and her parents, girl power, and respecting the generations that came before are all themes of the second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur. Recently I read the poet's debut collection Milk and Honey and I became spell bound by her writing.

this place makes me

the kind of exhausted that has

nothing to do with sleep

and everything to do with

the people around me.

Rupi Kaur has rightfully earned her place on my list of top favorite poets. She's almost like a motivator or a therapist I can fit in my pocket and refer to when I need that extra boost or reminder that the sun indeed is still shining. Her poetry is both relateable and gentle and I'd happily recommend this one to everyone in a heartbeat. If you're a fan of Milk and Honey, you'll love The Sun and Her Flowers just as much, if not even more.

her 2nd book and still she has no grasp of poetic language. she writes aphorisms that people like because they're relateable, but they are intellectually and emotionally insincere. an excellent businesswoman but a terrible writer. I would suggest rupi actually sit down and read some poetry once in a while, but I doubt she'd bother with that. her illustrations are alright though.

the lines of the poems were much longer than milk and honey’s

and the poems overall were longer

(sometimes too long)

which I greatly appreciated,

but I found it repetitive at times

and I didn’t know where it was all going.

I loved the talk of girl love & self love & representation & feminism & rape culture

and of course Rupi Kaur delivers it all in a beautiful choice of words

but something was missing for me.

something was lacking, some

magical

aspect that I found in milk and honey.

but it
