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.

Luxuriousness of Time

A luxuriousness of time
laid out before me
like a velvet field of daisies

Lazing about innocuously
observing ants or clouds

Tickling my own cheek
sending prickly down
of blessed dandelion
on its merry quest

Highlight of an ending note
quenched by icy fresh lemonade
