“7 Artists” Degas Gallery, McLean Va.

Dunhwa gets
water-heating pot,
slips on orange hand-
knit or crocheted
slipper socks, rattles
cups behind drawn shade, then she

reappears, uncurls
new rice paper paintings for
visitor
to see. He wants them
all, picks one.

Her kindness
comes from magic heart
connected to roots
sunk in old markets:
men without eyes, Eve creates,

men think, women birth,
are attached to earth. First woman
means new life
but paint dries in so
many ways:

over and
over to find the right flow.
Dunhwa hides
nothing, moves forward,
discovers her path

as she goes,
creates as a woman should,
as one who
is directed by
universal tug.
