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 Feather Man

The feather man
could have chosen
to wear a crown, a blessed badge
To beat his chest
and play top of the heap
Instead, instead...
with open heart to open hearts
he gifted feathers, his treasure
To a circle of sisters
whom he did not know
And became all the richer
for giving his gifts...
