Buds of the Waratah swollen and red
Furry flying foxes aplenty overhead
The cool winds now disappear
All signifying Ngoonungi is here.

Pitter patter light rains fall gently
Gatherings and ceremonies to celebrate a time of plenty.
Crustaceans in abundance make for a scrumptious feast
Mollusc shells creating middens over the years
Some of the shells crushed into a powder
And used for children as a healing power

As November looms
The Kai’arrewan begin to bloom
A sign Parra’dowee is here
The newest chapter of the year.
