Jan, I'm so taken in by this haiku and the pictures. I found it informing, inspiring, and educational. Way to go, girl! A 7. This should rate high in the contest. ~~Darlene

Your pride for the Island you've lived on for 19 years, Jan is clearly visible. And I will go right now and find your other poem on Independence. Thanks, Darlene

I hope Skat likes it Nette:-) It's really about pride in the flag rather than the flag itself - but will take my chances:-) hugs Jan xx

So difficult to do a poem about it Harry - I have such pride in the Manx flag and love to see it on the TV. Sadly the 3 legs emblem is sometimes considered to be like the swastika and one year 2 athletes were made to cover it up with tape on the back of their running vests in the commonwealth games:-( hugs Jan xx

This is memorable and very beautiful and touching Jan! Best of luck in the contest. 7
