Most every work day for more than 11 years, Dena wrote a love note, poem or other thought, on a napkin - and tucked it in Marshal's lunch - a ritual of the heart. At the beginning of 2009, Marshal started typing them up. It became our practice to share the Daily Napkin with you, OUR ritual of the heart. Then, in October 2015, Marshal retired, so the whole dynamic changed. Dena took several months to re-evaluate and decide what she was going to do. Since she is also simplifying, she is in the process of incorporating all 8 (including this one) websites into one. With that in mind, the poetry of the napkin is now joined with her art and/or photography images. May you enjoy them. May they feed your spirit.

Daily Napkin for Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Over in the meadow,
horse with an attitude
dances in the crisp light,
tossing her mane
with a snort and a stomp,
out for a brisk romp.
I, in my room here,
watch from afar
yet my spirit swells,
Mustang heart.

They pull us into their fields
of grasses and heart.
Those mares
shimmering in the wind
with soft eyes.
