it takes grace
the thing about
your name is
positive and negative
connotation in any language
it either lights me up or
leaves me aching for days

the term 'insta poet' is often touted when describing rupi. i asked what her thoughts were . she responded :
. it depends on the connotation, there's
some people that have used it positively because they're like : 'oh
this is incredible because i never read poetry but feel this in my
heart and i saw it through a platform that i used all the time' -
and then there's the other consideration where : 'this is insta
poetry and not real poetry' - that's interesting because i think
it's demeaning to my readers. many of whom are young women .
nella scrittura di rupi kaur non ci sono maiuscole
omaggio alla sua prima lingua, il gurmukhi, considerato sacro : nella scrittura gurmukhi tutte le lettere sono trattate allo stesso modo.
mi piace questa
semplicità. questa simmetria e questo andare sempre avanti. è una
rappresentazione visuale di quello che vorrei vedere più spesso nel
mondo: uguaglianza. per proteggere questi piccoli dettagli della mia
lingua li includo in quest’altra lingua .

She inherited her love of art
from her mother and began drawing and painting at five years old. She
continued her art into her teens, but at the age of seventeen began to
focus more in writing and performing.
Uncomplicated and concise Kaur’s poetry has been criticized for being too simplistic. Parody accounts have shown up on Twitter that intend to show how easy it is to write a Rupi Kaur poem – the gist being you take any conversation, format it in all lowercase and insert random line breaks.
With almost 2
million followers, Kaur has made her straightforward poetry about
love, heartbreak and womanhood a global sensation .

truth be told i felt a little bad about touring across the states and leaving my home out of it.
guilt tripping worked wonders. the amount of comments i got from
angry canadians (and it takes a lot for us to get angry) had me so
shook i knew i had to do a quick swing across canada before the
holiday season. edmonton vancouver toronto you ready????? it’s about

last week i landed in japan for a long overdue personal trip and i have to express my gratitude to this sacred land and its warm people.
it has been such an incredible experience to be enriched in a culture so very different from my own. i am learning a lot and enjoying the space. the cities. the villages. the food. oh my god the food. it is magnificent !!! i’m in awe of many things here and can’t wait to share them with you over the next weeks. here is a page from the japanese edition of ‘milk and honey’ . it feels fitting to share this poem because the illustration was an interpretation of ’the great wave off kanagawa’ a famous world renowned woodblock print by the japanese artist hokusai. it’s been one of my favourite pieces of art since i was a little girl and now to be here. in the place where it began is humbling.
it’s 11 a.m. right now and a delicious cup of coffee and fluffy
japanese pancakes await me in one of these bustling osaka streets .
i hope you’re taking care of yourselves. can’t
wait to share more. if you have any must see/must
do items - leave them in the comments !
i love you.
anche se le si separa
finiscono per riunirsi
non si possono separare gli amanti
le strappi con la pinzetta
le mie sopracciglia trovano
sempre la strada
per stare insieme
