This week I’m waiting on: the sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur





Expected Release Date: October 3rd, 2017

From Goodreads:

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
in order to bloom


I really liked Rupi Kaur’s insanely popular poetry collection, Milk and Honey, even if I did find it a tad overhyped. With the current state of the world, I know I for one could use all the inspirational poetry I can get. The sun and her flowers looks like a quick and moving read that will provide a welcome burst of motivation.
