Toronto based writer and artist, Rupi Kaur became an Instagram sensation and the darling of her fellow Millennials with the publication of her previous collection of dreamy, illustrated poems, Milk and Honey. Her newest collection of poetry and illustrations, The Sun and Her Flowers continues to enchant her devoted followers. Exploring themes of love, heartbreak and healing, Kaur has divided her book into five chapters, each reflecting the life cycle of a flower; wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming.

The Sun and Her Flowers is a beautiful journey through a range of emotions describing the life Kaur has lived. Inspiring and raw, perfectly complemented by her illustrations, her poems are sure to invoke a visceral response from the reader. Her poetry is free form, and many have criticized her for this, but in my opinion the poetic form and the artistry of the illustrations are perfect vehicles for her passionate expressions of love in all its forms.

I am not a huge poetry reader. However, I enjoyed this collection of writings. Borrowing this from the library made me feel somewhat compelled to finish it within a timeline. I imagine that it would be more delightful to purchase this book and read small sections over a longer period of time.
