Crab Shell on Beach Today (about 3″ wide)

Oh, Great Spirit
  Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
  hear me, I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
  the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have
  made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
  you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have
  hidden in every leaf and rock.…

–Native American prayer, translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887
