The Sun and Her Flowers Reviews
[Edit: had to change my rating to 5 stars]
Rupi Kaur does it once again. Her poetry is blooming. Her words hit home as they always do. I mean, there's a reason why there's a surge in poetry books being sold now. She's the reason.
I love what she advocates in her poetry collections, what she stands for. How it is told in a format of stages, of growth. Following on from her previous collection (not that it is a sequel, but the format and themes are similar), the sun and her flowers is tackling the ...more
it isn't what we left behind
that breaks me
it's what we could've built
had we stayed.
Grief, self abandoment, the bond between a child and her parents, girl power, and respecting the generations that came before are all themes of the second collection of poetry by Rupi Kaur. Recently I read the poet's debut collection Milk and Honey and I became spell bound by her writing.

the kind of exhausted that has
nothing to do with sleep
and everything to do with
the people around me. ...more
I love Rupi Kaur.
A good reader finishes a book before criticising it, but a good writer knows a book is trash a few pages in.
“I hear a thousand kind words about me and it makes no difference yet I hear one insult and all confidence shatters - focusing on the negative."
This quote was like a punch in a gut. I felt guilt, shame, and realization when I read it because honestly, I am like that.
Rupi Kaur did it again. Her brutally honest poems stirred up something inside me. A year ago, I read milk and honey and I was quite surprised of how personal, vulgar and relatable it was. But this book? I personally ...more
Enjoyed this a lot. A few pieces really stood out to me, especially on the topic of being a WOC and immigration. Liked this more than MILK AND HONEY.
The Sun and Her Flowers is my anticipated poetry book this year by the one and only Rupi Kaur. Her poems are relatable and exceptionally written. This collection is divided into five chapters depending on the topic. There's love, relationships, racism, grief, refugees, empowering women etc. and my personal favorite is about self-love. It's straightforward and successfully stirred my emotions.
Here are my favorites in this collection:
we need more love
not from men
and each other

her 2nd book and still she has no grasp of poetic language. she writes aphorisms that people like because they're relateable, but they are intellectually and emotionally insincere. an excellent businesswoman but a terrible writer. I would suggest rupi actually sit down and read some poetry once in a while, but I doubt she'd bother with that. her illustrations are alright though.
