Jen Minkman was born in the Netherlands in 1978. Although she has always written stories in Dutch, the poems and lyrics she writes are almost exclusively in English.
The aborigines of Australia use Dreaming tracks or Songlines to find their way across vast expanses of land. Words in these songs describe natural landmarks originally created by the gods in song, and the songs must be sung regularly in order to keep the land alive. Likewise, the poems in this audiobook mark my walk of life and should be listened to in order to keep my soul alive and help me find my way.

21 short, concise and intense poems.
Songlines by Jen Minkman is a nice collection of 21 poems, each of which with a distinct theme or purpose. They range from love to religion, and are short, concise and intense. I couldn't help but be drawn into the spirituality of this collection. My favorite was "Testament" because of the emotions that were evoked from its words - I listened to it several times.
Tiffany Williams did an excellent job narrating. She had great cadence and warmth. Her smooth voice was perfect for providing the perfect platform for each poem's imagery.
I recommend Songlines to anyone who enjoys poetry, as well as those who want a short respite from reading/listening to novels.
