My car broke down in the middle of the Jacques Cartier Bridge yesterday. My front wheel just ripped off the frame due to rust. I heard the sound of screeching burning rubber...cars behind me slamming on their brakes. Thank the Great Spirit they were swift. I am thankful I was not hit and I did not cause any accidents. Here I was in the middle of the bridge traffic coming and going on both sides of me. The endless possibilites... THAT is the only thing that kept playing in my mind...the cause of a multiple car pile up collision ...and it did not happen. No one was hurt...my car is scrapped...do not want anyone to EVER drive that killer trap. I signed it over to my mechanic and that is that. We now bury the remains of a shark (Tiburon Hyundai)...so be it!

its terminal fate
let us all bow our heads in silence
as we mourn this pack of metal.
Now that that is out of the way. I can respond to this prompt seriously.

I know that January is the traditional calendar New Year but September has always been a new change, a new year. Even if children start a new year in September with school, how can we, as parents not be influenced by this new transformation. This time of year reminds me of new scribblers, brand new pens, writing real pretty on the first pages...it is a chance to start anew, to do better after a rest, vacation and it is an opportunity for students to grow...so much promise.
given a second chance
season pleads to survive
new moon winks slyly
a new beginning
