The Sun and Her Flowers
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
in order to bloom
About this Author
Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. As a twenty-one-year-old university student, Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first poetry collection, milk and honey. Next came its artistic siblings, the sun and her flowers and home body. These collections have sold over 11 million copies and have been translated into over forty-three languages. Most recently in 2022, she released Healing Through Words, a journey of guided writing exercises to help readers explore their own creativity. As she has done from the very beginning, Rupi self-produced Rupi Kaur Live, the first poetry special of its kind, which debuted on Amazon Prime Video in 2021. Rupi Kaur graces stages across the globe on sold-out world tours. These shows are a poetic theatrical experience interlaced with her own touch of stand-up. Her work touches on love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, and migration. She feels most at home when creating art, performing her poetry onstage, and spending time with family and friends.
