Poetry Friday: Ursula K. Le Guin

Current Mood: creative
Current Song: Gold from Once

When you find the hidden catch
in the secret drawer
behind the false panel
inside the concealed compartment
in the desk in the attic
of the house in the dark forest,
and press the spring firmly,
a door flies open to reveal
a bundle of old letters,
and in one of them
is a map of the forest
that you drew yourself
before you ever went there.

- selected lines from The Writer on, and at, Her Work by Ursula K. Le Guin

Beautiful. It reminds me of Sara Lewis Holmes' new book THE WOLF HOUR. If you haven't read it, do so.
