Mirabai
1498 – 1546
Kudki , India


Dark Friend, What Can I Say?This love I bring 

from distant lifetimes is ancient, 

do not revile it. 

Seeing your elegant body 

I am ravished. 

Visit our courtyard, hear the women 

singing old hymns 

On the square I’ve laid 

out a welcome of teardrops, 

body and mind I surrendered ages ago, 

taking refuge 

wherever your feet pass. 

Mira flees from lifetime to lifetime, 

your virgin.
