Not all workplace drama is bad – especially when it involves your haiku poetry

Over the summer, we asked Lo Que Pasa readers share their thoughts on working from home in the form of haiku. As always, you came through, providing us with 17-syllable doses of reflection, wit and levity.

In June, we shared dozens of submissions from faculty and staff across campus and beyond. However, as we learned in the Sept. 2 LQP story about the 'Poetry Centered' podcast, poetry is not just meant to be read – it's meant to be heard.

For that, we turned to an expert: David Morden, associate professor of voice and movement in the School of Theatre, Film and Television.

Morden is an experienced actor, having performed in productions including "Hamlet," "Waiting for Godot" and "The Threepenny Opera." He has also performed in Shakespearean festivals in Utah, Colorado and Seattle as well as with the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C.

Take a break and listen to your poems come to life in this delightfully tongue-in-cheek dramatic reading (see the video below).

Revisit our earlier LQP stories, where we shared happy news and work-from-home tips. You also might want to check out the the photo galleries with shots of your home offices, kids and pets.
