Happy New Year
I didn't know what to choose this year. I received it for Christmas, opened it last night and was surprised it is a story of poems. Last year I didn't read any poetry and it is my simple pleasure, so I thought a good choice, plus it is a real book, not on Kindle, wow and published on my birthday. I read 99% on my Kindle, so another great start, a little treat.
And my choice is The sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur
Published - October 3, 2017
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
in order to bloom
