Basis Points’ resident haiku master, the B-I-C, recently learned of a weekly haiku contest run by the Financial Times Executive Appointments section. He couldn’t resist entering.
This week’s topic was "being fired," and fortunately or unfortunately, the B-I-C was a winner with the following entry:
My wife hugs me
the shock recedes
By Evan Flaschen
This is fine praise. The judges for this weekly contest include FT editors who narrow down the submissions, with the final selection being made by a judge affiliated with the British Haiku Society, World Haiku Association, Haiku Foundation, or Poet in the City.
More information on the FT’s haiku contest can be found here.
