A Prayer for Mystics

by Zachary Adama

Find satisfaction
in the perfection
of small things.

Be in awe
of mundane

Do less
be more
want less
be grateful.

Find love
in the midst
of everything.

Be at peace
in the maelstrom
and doldrums alike.

Do more
with less
want not
be equanimous.

This is a prayer
for mystics
and a practice
for would-be saints.
