She spoke about her experiences and mentioned she was…

I saw them on my way out this morning
Fallen petals
Strewn on the sandstone path
The promise they held just a day ago
Extinguished in a moment

On the tree where they all used to live
Encouraged to shine
Until that storm
When it all went wrong.

For thousands of years the Djiringanj people came to the Bermagui Waterhole to camp and have ceremony. It was a sacred place and a permanent source of fresh water with an abundance of fish and shellfish.
