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.

Falls Trek

It’s time to plant
A winter’s garden
To toil in soil and clear ground

Make way through summer’s crop
and begin fall’s trek into winter

The seeds of greenness and deep roots
flourish in the autumn warmth

‘Neath still moist earth
rushing lazily to break through

• • •
 
There are seasons to our growth
and times to clear tired and leggy leftovers
from a season past

May your new harvest be bountiful…
