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

    The poem “accent” was so meaningful to me. Thank you Rupi for fresh, deep and genuine poetry that touched my soul. I read MILK AND HONEY and THE SUN AND HER FLOWERS back to back. They are books to read and re-read all over again.
  • Loved it!

    She makes you feel as if your there with her writing and sharing the very same experiences. As a woman, as a daughter, as a lover she lets us in and in many ways we’ve all experienced life as she has. It’s beautiful. Raunchy. It’s everything. Thank you❤️
  • It was alright.

    I purchased this book shortly after it hit shelves, because I was enthralled by Milk and Honey. I found this book to be less relatable, and it seemed as though some of the poems were simply remakes of ones found in Kaur’s first hit book. I read this cover to cover in about 20 mins and ended up gifting it to a friend who was going through a hard time. It wasn’t money wasted, since I was able to gift it, and it was $10, but all in all, I would say this is not one of Kaur’s best compostitions. Hoping the next is a bit more original!

    Kaur truly captures her essence in this book. I read her last one “Milk and Honey” and I adored both. “The Sun and Her Flowers” is more detailed, as it tells a perpetual story. She carefully and precisely wrote about her struggles with self love and acceptance. She also writes about the adversity her family had to face as immigrants. Her story about immigrants is absolutely humbling and inspiring. It’s amazing how she manages to express her parent’s situation and how it impacted her. The author is a true poet with an amazing mind, exposing the common problems of society, and her solutions, in sweet poetry.
