The Sun and Her Flowers
The Sun and Her Flowers | Rupi Kaur
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

I‘ve been reading and watching a lot of feminist literature and television lately, and it‘s made me tune in to how grateful I am to all the women who came before me, and all the work they did so I can enjoy what freedoms I do have, and it‘s made me look for ways to get involved in the struggle for the many freedoms we still didn‘t. #gratitude @Eggs

slategreyskies I love this. I agree. 💕 3mo

“i hardened under the last loss. it took something human out of me. i used to be so deeply emotional i'd crumble on demand. but now the water has made its exit. of course i care about the ones around me. i'm just struggling to show it. a wall is getting in the way. i used to dream of being so strong nothing could shake me. now. i am. so strong. that nothing shakes me. and all i dream is to soften.”

as I didn't enjoy that much "milk and honey" from the same author, I could have expected the same from this one.
after those books I assume poetry isn't my thing ?

Readergrrl I‘ve read Kaur‘s books and I‘d be happy to reread those too. Beautiful!! I‘m not familiar with Sarah Kay. I‘ve listened to some of her spoken work, so I‘m always eager to learn more. I guess I‘d be happy with any of these choices!!! 😊 13mo

I don't read Ebooks very often it hurts my eyes too much but I had been wanting to read more of RUPI Kaur books.
She is a brilliant author and I think she writes from the soul which connects with me completely.
If she hurts she doesn't sugar coat it, if she enjoys something she says so.
I admire her pure honesty in everything and she thinks the way I do.

Wish pure happiness and soft peace
Upon the ones
Who've been unkind to you
And keep moving forward.

I think we are all working on letting go and forgiving other's it's not easy but with time and growth it can be done.

TrishB I don‘t think I‘m up to working on it yet! Nursing a grudge can be my speciality. 1y
kaysworld1 @TrishB I can too but as I get older I don't need the crap anymore, I want a quiet life and not dragged into everyone's petty shit! 😆 1y

A simplistic, but powerful collection of poems. I‘m only just getting into poetry, so for a beginner like me, this collection was perfect. I think it helped that there are sections in this book that are resonating at this point in my life. Even though her words are accessible, doesn‘t make her work any less poetic.

4/5⭐️

#poetryswap @Cathythoughts @Chrissyreadit @TheBookHippie I know I haven't been very useful on my form, but any contemporary poets would be great! I've moved a lot of the poetry books I've stacked over the years towards the top of the list, so hopefully that will help too!

Also, chocolate might not be a good idea (eating too much at the mo!), so bookmarks/bullet journal stuff may be better!

Cathythoughts Oh good 👍🏻❤️ 1y

The sun and her flowers is about overall healing and is divided into five sections on getting there. The book is about loss and then eventually blooming. The genre of the book is poetry. The reason I picked this book is because for as long as I can remember now I‘ve enjoyed reading poetry. The author is the main character in her book and talks about her healing journey.

MissYaremcio I love Rupi Kaur!! I just picked up her latest book! 6/6 1y

This book is collection of poems. Some of them are really well-written like they have impact on you. But at one point it seems a little boring. the only thing I like about the book is some great poems in it.

I‘m no poetry connoisseur but...

It was a bit simplistic at times - which in a way is nice - but it also didn't really elicit any strong emotions in me, which like? Isn't that the point of poetry?
Some pieces really resonated with me - and i did enjoy a select few poems - but I didn't feel particularly moved?

So I‘ve been the kind of person who cracks the “still better than rupi kaur joke” but now that I‘ve read this I‘m really rethinking that. It‘s not out of this world, but I 100% see the appeal and why people loved it.
