“Milk and Honey” offers delightful poems

“Milk and Honey” is a book of collected poems written by Rupi Kaur and was published in October of 2015.
The poems focus on different subjects women can face in their daily lives, such as love, loss, abuse and femininity. Many are written in prose form, so they read very easily. The messages are simple to understand and it would be quite difficult for a young girl to not be able to find a relatable poem in this book, since the topics are so broad and so centered on women’s feelings and struggles.
There are four different sections of the book: the hurting, the loving, the breaking and the healing. Poems relevant to those topics are placed under their fitting section, which helps to organize and to find what you’re looking to read.
Accompanying the poems are little drawings by the author to further emphasize the message the poem is trying to convey. The style of the drawings is so cute and is so fitting for the way the poems are written. The cohesiveness of the entire book is so eloquent and lovely.
“Milk and Honey” delivers deeply important messages that would be beneficial for any woman to read, regardless of circumstance. Kaur does a splendid job of conveying meaningful themes in so few words. The reader is carried through sour times and taught to find the sweetness.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys poetry, needs solace, or is just looking for an introspective read. The admirable honesty of the words offers insight to anyone who picks it up—there’s so much to gain by reading these poems and really nothing to lose.
