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, January 27, 2010

Over in the meadow
where the mists like jewels
were just lifting
to reveal the deepest emerald
She lifts her veil
and there in the new sunlight
the pond awakens, sparkles
in a silence like a velvet robe
The rich, verdant vision
courses through my veins
and dewey chill shivers my spine
Ah, to be alive!
