Speaker of truth and the sun -- these two

by Akha

English version by Krishnaditya


Speaker of truth and the sun -- these two --
Give knowledge and light to all.
As with the sunrise the owl's power subsides,
So also a malign mind dislikes the truth.
Akha, one without malice speaks straight;
It's the sun's approach which removes darkness.

-- from Wings of the Soul: Poems of Akha: The Spiritual Poet of India, Translated by Krishnaditya
