Looking For Your Light - Poem by Allama Prabhu

Looking for your light,
I went out:

it was like the sudden dawn
of a million million suns,

a ganglion of lightnings
for my wonder.

O Lord of Caves,
if you are light,
there can be no metaphor.

[English version by A. K. Ramanujan
Original Language Kannada]
