All I Was Doing is Breathing
Something has reached out and taken in the beams of my eyes.
There is longing, it is for his body, for every hair of that dark body.
All I was doing was being, and the Dancing Energy came by my house.
His face looks curiously like the moon, I saw it from the side, smiling.
My family says, "Don't ever see him again!" And they imply things in a low voice.
But my eyes have their own life; they laugh at rules, and know whose they are.
I believe I can bare on my shoulders whatever they want to say to me.
Mira says: Without the energy that lifts mountains, how am I to live?
From Mirabai, Ecstatic Poems (She was a 16th century mystic poet from India.)
Version by Robert Bly and Jane Hirshfield
