West Harbor



Land born of unadulterated ideas
Drawings, paintings with no contours 
Where I imagined up explorations, romances
Baffling the mere mortals
Far from you, lost I am
The fabric of my visions,
Torn away.



figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.
Heinrich Lausberg notes that "second audiences" for apostrophe may include "the opponent in court; absent persons, living or dead; things (fatherland, laws, wounds, etc.)" (Handbook of Literary Rhetoric, 1973; trans. 1998).

For someone like me this challenge was intriguing. I love learning new facets of the language since I have no recognition of any figure of speech or any other technicalities. Thank you Trifecta for just being out there!

West Harbor was my solace from the torrents of school life. Academics were supremely stressed in the small town I grew up in. Having a genius sister and achievers for neighbors didn’t help. I was happy drawing and painting and jotting down poems and tales which made no sense to my parents or teachers. I called my room West Harbor and conjured up all sorts of grand quests.
Somewhere down the line, I jumped on the band wagon and left West Harbor behind.

  1. Can't you have another West Harbor? I probably see my study/library in the same way. I'm sure you will find a new haven of creativity soon.
