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 love it just as much as (if not more than) milk and honey 🐝
  • Very good start to the year

    Its easy to relate parts of the story to something happening in your life and it helps give a different more positive perspective out. I enjoyed the emotional journey the book is organized into.

    My second read by the author. Her first collection was given to me as a Bday gift this past October. I felt in love with her openness and truth. Therapeutic and cleansing!!! Couldn’t wait for her newest book- as beautiful as the first. An amazing talent, far deeper than her 25yrs. She has walked this way before. A must read for anyone and everyone trying to understand love, loss, giving up and moving forward! VRay J I Louisiana
  • Not real poetry

    By mike schultz
    Most teenage girls who are passionate in writing poetry can write something to at least this level. I understand how you want to increase your audience by simplifying your poetry, but this sounds too generalized. Most of these few lined poems can be found in a descriptive novel, Kaur definitely has an interesting perspective, but her tumblr-Esque illustrations and her instagram poems are far too basic to be considered fine art. This book is definitely overhyped.
