Waterstones Says

The vibrant new collection that builds on Kaur’s globally bestselling debut Milk and Honey. A celebration of selfhood, nature and the places where we find our own roots.

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
fall
root
rise
in order to bloom

From Rupi Kaur, the top ten Sunday Times bestselling author of milk and honey, comes a revised hardback editon of her bestselling second collection of poetry.

Illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. It is a celebration of love in all its forms.

Canadian poet Rupi Kaur’s poetry started as a series on Instagram before Kaur self-published a collected volume, milk and honey, which quickly became a US bestseller.
