NOTE: Make Prayer Flags

May the Protection of the Ancestors be Yours


Fran and Bunk, November 12, 1955 / Philadelphia, PA

Happy 51st Anniversary Mom and Dad. We sure had a good time last year. Here is the prayer that I read at the lunch:

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.

[from “Beannacht” by John O’Donohue]
