Read an exclusive new poem by Rupi Kaur on the Waterstones blog.

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

From Rupi Kaur, the top ten Sunday Times bestselling author of milk and honey, comes her long-awaited 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.

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Ltd

"Kaur made her name with poems about love, life and grief. They resonate hugely." - Sunday Times

"Poems tackling feminism, love, trauma and healing in short lines as smooth as pop music." - New York Times

"Caught the imagination of a large, atypical poetry audience…Kaur knows the good her poetry does: it saves lives." - Evening Standard

"Breathing new life into poetry…It has people reading, and listening." - The Pool
