When we asked Lo Que Pasa readers to share photos of their home offices and their work-from-home colleagues – including kids, dogs, turtles and insects – we received dozens of images.

When we asked you to share work-from-home tips, we again received a plethora of submissions.

You completed those assignments with flying colors. But can you do the same with the next one?

To continue our mission to offer content that is both helpful and happy, we are putting out a call for original haiku about these three topics:

  • Working from home.
  • Zooming.
  • Home schooling.

Submissions should be in the standard haiku format of three lines, with the first and third lines having five syllables and the second line having seven. For example:

Business in the front
Frizzy party in the back
My new Zoom hairdo

Please email your haiku to Pila Martinez at by May 29. Please include your full name and title and the name of your department/office/unit.

Readers are welcome to submit as many haiku poems as they would like. The best will be featured in the June 10 issue of Lo Que Pasa.
