Most every work day for more than 9 years now, Dena has written 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. Now, it has become our practice to share the Daily Napkin with you, OUR ritual of the heart. May you enjoy them. May they feed your spirit.

Tomato Sublime

One spent tomato plucked late from the vine
still retains a semblance of a happier time
 
When Sun and water, soil and and breeze combined
to contribute to a flavor, oh so sublime
 
• • • … • • •
 
The juice it runs down the chin
a renegade seed upon the cheek
 
The heady tomato smell fills the nose
Oh, gosh, a fresh tomato tastes fine
 
• • • … • • •
 
Summer is headed toward waning
some leaves are thinking of browning
 
Still, tomatoes are harvested everywhere
going out now to the garden to get mine
