Holiday Haiku 25

Thanks for joining me for these Holiday Haikus, friends! Today is December 31, so this is my last one. I enjoyed writing these a lot—they enabled me to notice things and then write about them in condensed form. Taken together, they provide a nice chronicle of my month.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
