My Favorite Inspirational Native American Prayer

A friend of mine has this wonderful Native American Prayer hanging on his refrigerator.  It sums up what I often feel like as I am getting ready to consume a great meal.

Here is the prayer:

The Tables Turn

By mystery of creators wish
I now transform plant, meat and fish

I take these lives with thanks and strength
And from them draw my life and length

I vow to live as fierce as they
In joy for yet another day

And worthy of this gift return
All with love when tables turn


I've added this poem to a few of my designs.  I love the third stanza.  Below is a coffee mug I designed.  The moose comes from a photo I took of a moose mount (with a few digital adjustments).  What do you think?  Hope you enjoy the poem.  If you do, share with others.
