“This is the purpose 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” —–Rupi Kaur
Hey fellow book-lovers
My plan this year was to start reading more poetry. Today I’m reviewing the first poetry book I’ve read this year and I am looking forward to reading more from this genre.
Title: The Sun and her Flowers
Author: Rupi Kaur
Published: 3 October 2017
No. of pages: 248
The sun and her flowers, is the second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur and the first one is Milk and Honey (which I am still planning to read). This poetry collection is divided into 5 chapters, namely; wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. This book is a vibrant journey about loss, growth, healing, honoring one’s roots, and rising up to find a home within yourself.
Below are some of the poems I enjoyed:
If you haven’t read this book, please check it out. Even if you are not a fan of poetry, I think you might enjoy it.
Those were my thoughts and I can’t wait to read Milk and honey. Please do leave a comment below with your thoughts.
Until next time.
