New Year’s Vespers #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Vespers: O Antiphons (16/12) – St Mary's Walthamstow

I did take comfort in the vespers and compline. I might have become a monk if I hadn’t come out. – John Cameron Mitchell

Omisoka eve,

Twilight zone nativity.

Year over year ho-heave!

Pagan Romans started their midwinter celebrations with the feast of Saturnalia on 17 December, ending them with a new year festival, the Kalendae Januariae, at the start of January – both were celebrated with parties and the exchange of gifts. – Alice Roberts
