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.

The Belly of the Bush

From my window, I see
into the belly of the bush
grown through the years
far taller than my dwelling
That blue tinged bird
in the belly of the bush
eats right there near my kitchen

In the spot where squirrels
frolic or meditate
or chomp away on fruit from the bush

Ignoring me all the while
