Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Product DetailsI'm not usually one for poetry but I had heard some buzz about this book and I thought that I would check it out.  I'm so very grateful that I did.  What I found upon reading was a braze and heartfelt examination of life, pain, love, and loss.

I enjoyed the fact that most of the poems in this book were succinct.  Each one used just precisely the words that it needed to.  It isn't verbose for the sake of using more words.  It's elegant.  I was able to read a poem or several poems at a time and really reflect on each one.  There is so much in this work, that while different from my own life experiences was powerful and relatable.

You were a dragon long before
he came around and said
you could fly

You will remain a dragon
long after he's left.

5 stars for this breathtaking work.
