The Tuesday Platform

I've only just come across some amazing poetry written by Rupi Kaur. I love her style; simple yet rich. Take a look at these two pieces and see what you think.




Poetry Collection- The Sun & Her Flowers

the rain tried to imitate my hands
by running down your body
i ripped the sky apart for allowing that
Poetry Collection: Milk and Honey
if I knew what
safety looked like
I would have spent less time falling into
arms that were not

Good morning from dreary Norfolk, Viv! Thank you for sharing the poems by Rupi Kaur - I love them too! I've posted a 'kind of' sonnet, which was inspired by this morning's lack of colour and the chill in the air.

Vivian Zems said...

@Kim...the weather in London isn't any better. I look forward to reading your sonnet.

@Ron- I can't seem to post a comment on your well-penned insomnia poem. Let me know if it's just me having this issue.

I still wish I were in London again. I miss our semi-annuaks. Was doing that for five years, twice a year. No more no. Been almost four years.
Nice poem. I felt goose bumps, thNk you.

I bought her books last year. A bit short, but some good writing. I hope she continues to hone her craft. xo
