Heart Thunderstorm

~ Barkindji interpretations provided by Kevin Knight and Wayne Knight  

 

Barka’s dyin. . .
no breath no breath
dust coughin through a dusty coffin, she’s spread, dyin
purlu-kanirla pirnti-karntu
purlu-kanirla pirnti-karntu
wiimpatja - wathu punritj
watharna. wartharna.
gamoo. gamoo.
wartharna. wartharna.
 
 


Heart Thunderstorm
Barka’s dyin. . .
 out of breath out of breath 
dust coughin through (her) dusty coffin she’s spread, dyin
heart attack...heart attack
my clan people
make it  rain rain
give me  water water
make it rain. . . rain.
