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.

Vocal Spirit

The focal point of his Spirit
the man was vocal
in most every regard

The pursuit of astute phrases
beguiled his appetite
even in the midst of silence

The poet’s soul, a local bard
and extraneous verbiage

A mirror with two sides

Melody runs beneath it
