Friday Haiku: The Real New Year

I have always felt
that autumn marks the new year
and new beginnings

I remember shoes
clothes that were too warm to wear
and all new school books

the hope I'd be new
and better at fitting in
having folks like me

it was more fun next
at college and then grad school
where I was then liked

Act predictably
and get the lay of the land
for the months to come

Pull out clothes to layer
Plan to do the winter chores
Goodbye to summer

Oh, each September
more new than the last winter
Spring ahead, fall back.
