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.

Sacred Meadowlark

Meadowlark sings
his wispy lighthearted tune
And all the world around him
bends to hear his melody
leans to know his song
The "V" of victory expands
as he breathes in Life's essence

And the vibrating yellow of sunshine
expresses his Life Song
on the breeze

Trill bird, song bird
thrill bird, love bird
Sacred Meadowlark...
