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.

Light Songs

Her words, like stars
fell from her lips to sparkle
across the blanket of sky
In myriad constellations
with tales of bravery
and lighthearted frivolity
His songs, like the dawning
of inumberable days
Awoke birds in their nests
for a sympony of praises
Noting life's sweet passage
with infinite delight
The days of light, like triple rainbows
spanned the valleys
in lavish Mystery
