December Haiku Share

So at the beginning of this haiku/tanka/haiga share, I made the analogy with the card game Crazy Eights. Today, the prompt is a wild card. I want you to share something you’ve wanted to share all month, but didn’t quite fit in with any of the prompts. Or a personal favorite. Or… whatever– it’s up to you.
