In honor of the Drepung Monks returning to Telluride, we thought we'd include some festivarian haikus scattered throughout this year's printed program - submitted (and credited to) festivarians. This is your chance to see your haiku and your name (if desired) in the festival program... 

For our purposes a haiku is 17 syllables of the form 5 / 7 / 5.  Your haiku can be about anything TBF-related: performers, campgrounds, friends, memories, scenes, traditions, food, hikes, history, whatever.

Be creative. Have fun.  And capture one of your magical Telluride moments in a haiku.

Post your haikus here in this thread.  As many as you like.  We'll choose approximately 20 of them next Friday, May 28.  You'll find out the winners in Telluride when you see the printed program.

(Thanks to aztoma for starting the awesome haiku thread last year.)

Tingling in cheeks
Becomes burning sensation
Face-melting solo!
 
Weave between the tents
Pickiní, moon shine and chatter
Late night walk-a-bout.

A Fester for the fest of us...

Ron Reich's Haiku-


Mountain sides sluff snow
Tall pines stand watch, listening
Waiting for bluegrass


Far below the sun
Melt water whispers, keeping
Bear Creek's cold secrets


Music from the hills
Journeys into the mountains...
And sounds 'round the world


Called by the solstice
The kids all come out to play
Regardless of age


Music falls like rain
We soak and play in puddles
Dancing up a storm


Gerry, I'm awake
And buzzed.  Two faves are now one-
Dark stout and coffee


Festivarians'
Semi-somnambulistic
Extravaganza
