This long anticipated anthology "Song of Sahel"- a collection of works from all over the world is finally out. This well organized book gives the reader a glimpse into the feelings of each participant for the plight of Sahel.

You will sense the love of Sahel while enjoying the benefit of art, photography and poetry. I am extremely proud of this project that will give aid to Sahel.

I can say confidently you will enjoy this anthology again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars a place to care . . . September 15, 2012
By sparrow
Format:Kindle Edition
This anthology stands alone as a beautiful testament to ego-less compassion. It is hard to be faced with the dusty & stark realities facing humanity .... to look need in the face, rise to meet it's demands and then create something from that place of naked necessity -- THIS composition bridges the painful into the sublime with knowledge & grace. The world spins madly on, seemingly ignorant of beauty & suffering equally so .... and every where we turn, there are causes yearning for our attention, and our dollars. Song of Sahel is so unique in its approach, remarkable in its craft, and so worthy of our time & care.
How does one make grace & art from the abject desperation of a barren landscape ? This is how ....

5.0 out of 5 stars Song of Sahel-The Anthology written by Jennifer Kiley September 20, 2012

Song of Sahel - The Anthology 9.20.12 written by Jennifer Kiley
I am very proud of the Anthology, Song of Sahel. I have donated a poem to this collection but I am not writing this review for that reason. Let me tell you what I know. Behind the scenes, this Anthology was inspired by the desperateness of the conditions in Sahel, in Western Africa, of the children who are starving and the land which is dying. Putting this project together took a call out to artists and writers who donated their work for the Anthology. The result is the most poignant collection of paintings, photography, poems and music. The 16 pieces of music are available through links contained in the book. The sounds are magnificent. The photography will move you. You will see the faces of the proud people of Sahel; you will look into the eyes of such divine children who want only what any person would, the chance to live a long and full life. They want to enjoying what other children would find to be fun, like playing. They don't have that. They can barely find the energy to survive.

The Anthology, Song of Sahel, is a grand artistic representation of what is happening in the region. The poems are moving and profound. The poets write of what they know of Sahel and convey in their own words how they experience the depth of despair the people feel. The poetry is sensitive, inspired and touches your soul and shows the poets' hearts shining through. Dr. Niamh Clune, the artist and publisher who spearheaded this endeavor, spent five months using her knowledge and ability organizing and creating the Anthology. I have added it to my collection not only to help fund Song of Sahel but to be reminded that there are people in the world who are barely surviving from hour to hour.

More About the Author

I love to write in childish rhyme;
I really do it all the time.
A Doctor and a Nana too ~
'Tis on a plum tree that I grew!

Shall I let you into one of my secrets?

When I was little, fairies lived at the bottom of my garden. I sang to them quietly (as fairies don't like shouting). And when dew covered the grass and made it glitter and sparkle, I knew the fairies would host a shindig!
Everyone knows that when dew is on the grass, fairies have their choice of the most beautiful peony, iris, or rose sparkles imaginable. Boy fairies wear shamrock, shiny breeches of bark be-dewed, smooth and slithery ~ great for sliding down mole-hills!

Fairies love dew! They drink it, and it makes them giggle! They wear it, and it makes them shimmer.

Dew is the diamond in the fairy-queen crown.

Just before dawn, they flit and dart ~ flicker and start; hover and whiz ~ zip and fizz; float and flash ~ make-a-dash; tease and prance ~ skip and dance; hurry and scurry ~ all of a flurry; rush and rail ~ skim, speed and sail!

The very best Leprechaun fiddlers play the most lively jigs! Elf harpists pluck at your heartstrings and weave magic in verse. Goblins are, by far, the best drummers. And meadow sprites have very high, reedy voices. Appearing on percussion are the cobbler gnomes ~ with a-clink and a-clank whenever needed and in perfect time. All in all, fairy gatherings are a sight to see ~ for those able to see them.

I spent many an early morning prancing to the tunes of the little people. I could dance a fine jig, pirouette often, sing a long song and recite a poem, all of which is of very great interest to fairies. Fairies taught me ancient secrets about bees and butterflies, worms and magic bears who know such an awful lot about everything. They also taught me secrets about science and how to grow up into someone who is wise.

I like to share some of those mysteries with boys and girls (and grown-ups who still have magic in them) who are inquisitive but can also keep a secret.

Sssssssssh! Promise you won't tell anyone.

My more grown-up Books

Orange Petals In A Storm; Part 1 of The Skyla McFee Series.

A bedraggled and bruised eleven-year-old child races through the streets of East London as though the hounds of hell were after her. She tries to reach the home of her childhood, a home that was hers until her mother's recent death. What becomes of Skyla McFee once she arrives there? And from whom does she run?

This is a story about a wonderful child who endures great suffering at the hands of her step-father. Though she lives in a harsh reality, she evolves spiritually despite, or perhaps because of the hurt she suffers. The magical way she transcends her unbearable life through her inner world transports us into the hauntingly beautiful world of the imagination. There, she discovers an inner strength and wonderful talent that helps her overcome her tormentors

Part 2: Exaltation Of A Rose is coming soon.

The Coming Of The Feminine Christ:(Non-Fiction)~a personally richly woven tapestry of myth, psychology, philosophy and mysticism that uncovers a new dynamic spiritual message for the age in which we live now.
