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.

Hairy Samurai


Kamikaze squirrel
little hairy samurai
 
Praying to his food
in reverence
as vehicles whizz by
 
Standing there on the pavement
at the edge of the freeway
 
Reminds me of the truth
that Spirit is everywhere
that it’s all sacred
 
...that foolish faith
makes for an intrepid warrior
