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



  • Spectacular!

    This poetry book is definitely in my top three! I loved the poet’s use of imagery and words. Her sketches and drawings provided a much more beautiful experience.

  • Stunning!

    By NunezK
    These poems are stunning and well written. Unlike her first book, this one was less relatable and targeted a more specific audience. Nothing wrong with that, personally unable to relate to her background. Still beautifully written!

    I swear to god it’s like reading what my soul needed to hear.
  • Accent

    By castlegirlnow
    The poem “accent” was so meaningful to me. Thank you Rupi for fresh, deep and genuine poetry that touched my soul. I read MILK AND HONEY and THE SUN AND HER FLOWERS back to back. They are books to read and re-read all over again.
