Milk and Honey

This is Kaur’s first well known poem collection, but the second that I read. Now, it may be like the old movie vs. book debate where whichever version you experience first, you like that version best. I enjoyed this collection, don’t get me wrong, but I think The Sun and Her Flowers was just so great and that it absolutely blew me away that I don’t think anything could top it! (Even though the next collection, if she publishes another one, will become my favorite!)

Once again, her raw emotion blows me away each time I read any of her work. She is just so intimate within her poetry that you just have more empathy for her works than any other. Notice I said empathy not sympathy. She rights in ways that the reader will say to self, “wow. That’s me.”

This especially relates to writes and lovers. So many of these poems hit me hard.

To those who haven’t yet experienced Rupi Kaur’s work: you need to read one of her collections.
