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.

Coyote's Cry

Coyote once came sneaking around
sniffin' a bit all about town
with a wink and a nod
prepared to get down
 
Sneaky, persistent, and loyal, too
Coyote knew what Coyote knew
and his tail waving high
fooling more than few
 
As the sun prepared to leave the sky
Coyote, well fed, looked in my eye
leaned back head and let loose
like a stylish young girl, his vivacious cry
