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
The Sun and Her Flowers
"It has been one of the greatest and mot difficult years
of my life. i learned everything is temporary. moments.
feelings. people. flowers. i learned love is about giving.
everything. and letting it hurt. i learned vulnerability
is always the right choice because it is easy to be cold
in a world that makes it so very difficult to remain soft.
i learned all things come in twos. life and death. pain
and joy. salt and sugar. me and you. it is the balance of
the universe. it has been the year of the hurting so bad but
living so good. making friends out of strangers. making
strangers out of friends. learning mint chocolate chip
ice cream will fix just about everything. and for
the pains it can't there will always be my mother's arms.
we must learn to focus on warm energy. always. soak
our limbs in it and become better lovers to the world.
for if we can't learn to be kind to each other how will
we ever learn to be kind to the most desperate
parts of ourselves."
Un très bon recueil de poésie! Le style de Kaur est très intime et permet de nous identifier à ses poèmes. Les thèmes abordés sont très intéressant et profond. The sun and her flowers est un livre à déguster lentement pour mieux l'apprécier.
