I just read an article that featured a lovely little table blessing.  As I've always said my own freeform prayer in my head at meals and have always wanted something to share with others during communal events, I thought I'd alter yon cute little poem a bit and commemorate it here.  (To keep for my own records, and to share with others.  If you like it, then by all means, feel free to use it as you please. :)) 

Blessings on the blossoms,
Blessings on the fruits,
Blessings on the leaves and stems,
Blessings on the roots,
Blessings on the gentle lives,
That helped to make this meal,
We thank you for this bounty
As in our heart/s we kneel.  

Alt. Version:
Who helped to make this food,
We give You thanks for all Your gifts,
And bow our heads in gratitude.

(And of course "we" can be substituted for "I," just as "Your" can be switched for "God's," "Heaven's," or "Earth's," etc. :))
Hope you enjoy!

My spirit is in Water.
My heart is in Fire.
My body is in Earth.
My mind is in Air.

Where all these things combine
is in Heaven, and part of me is There.

I dance the Dance betwixt the Four,
Turning, turning 'round again,
Ever searching for Equilibrium, Completion & Peace,
A place of White Light where all my Colors can blend.

All these Four are Part of Me
Each Element makes me Who I Am,
With blessings of Heaven, I pray while I spin.
And seek the Truth the best that I can.

Searching inward, reaching outward,
Dancing ever Forward all along,
The Harmony is Life in Me,
And I ask for Guidance in my Song.
