Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. Now I know it’s Thursday, but I had a book review scheduled for yesterday.
So today I want to talk about how I excited I am for Rupi Kaur’s new poetry book!
The Sun and Her Flowers is due to come out October 3rd of this month! I can’t wait to be able to get this book, I’m not sure yet if I will be able to buy it right away, but I will definitely be getting it from my library.
Goodreads Synopsis: 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
