Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur (153)

This is a wonderful book of poetry that I found unexpectedly at my local library. It is amazing what you can find if you just walk in and browse at your local library.

This is a wonderful book of poetry by writer and artist based in Toronto, the moved to discover myself. And many of her poems are probing and exhilarating at the same time.

Her writing style is unique. There is no capitalization, and no punctuation. Yet her poems make sense.

Her poems are short and yet sweet and to the point. Throughout her poems  she engages with themes of femininity, love, loss, trauma, and healing. When she is not writing or creating art, she is travelling internationally to perform her spoken word poetry, as well as hosting writing workshops.

I loved her book and it was a great find and a wonderful read over a week. I love to read poetry slowly.
