light gazing, ışığa bakmak

There exists a whole class of masters of eloquence
Their purpose was not the poem
Mawlana wrote the Mathnavi
And Gulsheni wrote the Manevi
Their purpose was clear
To tell the truth through poetry
To calling those people of wisdom poets
Is an insult to perfection.

From Harabat

Ziya Pasha (1825 - May 17th,1880)
