The Sun and Her Flowers

The sun and nature have always been an source of inspiration for many writers, poets and artists. Canadian poet Rupi Kaur’s second collection of poetry, The Sun and Her Flowers was named after the connection between sunflowers and the sun, as well as love and relationships. While each of the book’s five chapters reflects the life a plant; wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. Kaur uses flowers, plants and the natural world to convey her thoughts and feelings. We share one of our favourite poems from the book.

this is the recipe for 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

fall

root

rise

in order to bloom

- Rupi Kaur
