Poetry Isn't Dead!

Although I reviewed each of Rupi Kaur's poetry collections on the blog a few months ago, I wanted to share a few of my favourite poems from this wonderful poetess with you. I hope you enjoy the poems I've included in my faves, and I'd love you to share your own favourites with me in the comments! 

Some people say poetry is dead. And poetry, as many of the older generation know it, is dead. But poetry in general is not dead. It's just changed, dramatically. And that's okay. I think that the new generation of poetry is much more emotive and evocative. It draws on personal experience, of the poet and of the reader. And it's much more relatable for a new generation. Everything has to change, and move with the times. Poetry is no different. 

Rupi Kaur is one of my favourite poets, and her first collection (Milk and Honey) was a stunning read. I keep it, and her second collection (The Sun and Her Flowers), on my bookshelf to dip into whenever I feel the need to. Amanda Lovelace is another fantastic poetess, who writes wonderfully descriptive and emotional poems. If you're a fan of Rupi Kaur and haven't yet checked out Amanda Lovelace, I'd highly recommend you to do so. And vice versa, really. If you liked Amanda Lovelace, but haven't read Rupi Kaur, then you most definitely should!

I hope you enjoyed this look at my favourite poems from Rupi Kaur. Remember to share your favourites with me in the comments!
