Ancestor Prayer for Samhain

graveyard.JPGAncestor Prayer

When you were born
Earth became your body
Stone became your bone
Sea became your blood
Sun became your eye
Moon became your mind
Wind became your breath.

When you passed to the Otherworld
Your breath became Wind
Your mind became Moon
Your eye became Sun,
Your blood became Sea
Your bone became Stone
Your body became Earth.

When we were born you did the same for us.
You called forth the Earth and Stones.
The Sea arose and the Sun descended.
The Moon shone down and the Winds sang.
For those to come we shall do as you did for us
When we are gone, we shall do as you did before.

-Michael Dangler
