Wow...this is my spiritual home Alan and I'm half Manx. But I've only just come back from Port Erin where I spent so much time when younger. I have reconnected with numerous cousins after 44 years! Here's what I wrote last weekend on my return...

Beautiful Ellen Vannin...

Oh crafty 3-legged Isle,
beguiling in your wizardry
which catches folk off-guard,
rewinding time and stirring
memory's cauldron
so first remnants
then swathes return,
shaking off the cobwebs
with unerring charm and elegance...

Yes, Ellen Vannin's musical breeze
doesn't just get under your skin,
it becomes your skin and bones,
breathing within to the core of your
ancestry, warmth, character, vibrancy,
a cacophony of love and friendship
whirring forth, with,
kippers, fairies, sunshine-mossed rocks,
packed, stacked tables of food,
the fizz of water breaking on shore,
a golden eiderdown of miraculous delights
beneath Bradda's
proud stare

timeless, like the waves whispering on speckled sand,
like the Cosy Nook
and Erin's wall,
enticing senses, emotions, souls,

they say you can't hold the moments forever,
but you can...

Oh crafty Isle,
you know that I've wrapped you in a tight cocoon,
enchanted threads fashioned with strands of mystery,
then brought you home with me
for now...

Yes, shee as graih erriu*
I will return x

* peace and love on you
