Monday, lead-laden with tasks and liabilities. A whole week of hours and hours, of powerpointing, of random arbitrations, negations, and negotiations. This morning winter was back and they promised snowfall well into tomorrow.
Tomorrow I will need to go into the office, and already now I can feel how my bicycle tires will slide, making tracks in snow unmoved. There will be meetings, often less confrontational than I fear, but still I know my plans for tomorrow will be repeating inside me restlessly sleeping.
in our garden are squabbling —
Today Frank hosts Haibun Monday asking us to reflect on pressure at dVerse. To me, it was a very fitting topic for a Monday.

Manic Mondays in the workplace can be a lot if pressure.
You have captured the pressure of a Monday work day. I am feeling the crunch of numbers here myself.
Stay safe, hopefully, not too much snow will fall.
An exquisite testament to Monday blues! Bravo!
random arbitrations, negations, and negotiations – oh yes…that truly is a good description of a workday. Love the squabbling squirrels though!
I enjoyed this! Your haiku was fabulous in mirroring the theme!
I can say with certainty (as I read your haibun) ….I am incredibly thankful retirement is where I reside. Well done Bjorn, well done.
