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.

Golden Hot Seat

Golden ruffles
on the edges of his personality
Outward expressions
of the thick vein within

The shadow of his profile
for purpose of contrast
describe a thin man
while his golden aura
shines bright and true

The rich man rests for a moment only
on the hot throne of gold and jewels
before he takes off again

Unique Spirit’s expression
embodied as man…
