I see her walking
on a path through a pathless forest
or a maze, a labyrinth.
As she walks, she spins
and the fine threads fall behind her
following her way,
where she is going,
where she has gone.
Telling the story.
The line, the thread of voice,
the sentences saying the way.
(from "The Writer On, and At, Her Work)
The gorgeous Mythic Art in this post is by Toshiyuki Enoki. Born in Tokyo in 1961, he was trained in traditional Japanese painting, lacquer painting, and western painting techniques. You can see more of his work here.
You can read the full poem, "The Writer On, and At, Her Work," in The Writer on Her Work, Vol. II edited by Janet Sternberg (where it was first published), and in Le Guin's collection The Wave in the Mind.
