Festival Haiku - International Day Of The World's Indigenous Peoples 9 August - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Indigenuous peoples
in the wild a voice
grows loud by the day

indigenuous peoples
a distant strain of thunder
growing louder

indigenuous peoples
the only exotic fires
still flaring

indigenuous peoples
the only exotic dreams
left in our backyards

indigenuous peoples
in a world of uniformity
the privilege to walk a dream
