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.

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine
was all growed up and everything

Living in the back washes
of the carnival/rodeo thingy
she’d been there for years
most of her life, it seemed

Herded there by a cloudy character
of undefined purposes
in a nefarious attempt
to cloud her light

She couldn’t help it
shine is what she was
and shine is what she did
