صَحَا, said of a day, [aor. يَصْحُو,] inf. n. صَحْوٌ, It was, or became, cloudless: (TA:) and soأَصْحَى↓: (Mṣb, Ḳ, TA, but not in the CK:) [it is said that] صَحْوٌ signifies the departing of the clouds: (Ṣ, Mgh, Ḳ:) [but] Es-Sijistánee says that the vulgar think it to have this meaning, whereas it only means the dispersing of the clouds with the departing of the cold. (Mṣb, TA.) Andأَصْحَتِ↓ السَّمَآءُ The sky became cloudless. (Ks, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA, but not in the CK.)
And صَحَا مِنْ سُكْرِهِ, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) aor. يَصْحُو, (Mṣb,) inf. n. صَحْوٌ (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ) and صُحُوٌّ, (Mṣb,) [He recovered, or became free, from his intoxication; or] his intoxication ceased; as alsoاصحى↓: (Mṣb:) and صَحِىَ, (Ḳ, TA,) inf. n. صَحًا; (TA;) as alsoاصحى↓; (IḲṭṭ, Ḳ, TA;) is [likewise] said of one intoxicated; (Ḳ, TA;) both meaning he recovered from his state of insensibility; (TA;) and in like manner both are said of one affected with desire, or yearning or longing in the soul; (Ḳ, TA;) [and also of one sleeping, meaning he awoke: see an ex. of the former of these two verbs in this last sense in the latter part of the second paragraph of art. فرط.]
صَحْوٌ signifies also ‡ The relinquishing of youthful folly, and amorous dalliance, and of what is vain, or futile. (Ḳ, TA.) Hence the saying of a poet,
* صَحَا القَلْبُ عَنْ سَلْمَى وَأَقْصَرَ بَاطِلُهْ *
‡ [The heart relinquished, or has relinquished, youthful folly and amorousness by becoming rid of Selmà, and its vain, or futile, occupation ceased, or has ceased]. (TA.)
And one says, صَحَتِ العَاذِلَةُ † The censuring female relinquished censuring. (TA.)

أَصْحَيْنَا We became in a case of cloudlessness [of the sky or day]; (Mṣb, TA;) the sky became cloudless to us. (Ṣ.)
أَصْحَيْتُهُ مِنْ سُكْرِهِ [I recovered him, or roused him, from his intoxication], and مِنْ نَوْمِهِ [from his sleep]. (TA.)

صَحْوٌ [an inf. n. used as an epithet, and therefore applicable to a fem. as well as a masc. noun, and to a dual and a pl. as well as a sing.], applied to a day, Cloudless; (Ḳ, TA;) as alsoصَاحٍ↓; (Ṣ, TA;) andمُصْحٍ↓: (Mgh, Mṣb:) and (Ḳ) in the same sense applied to a sky; (Ks, Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) as alsoمُصْحِيَةٌ↓, or, accord. to Ks, this is not allowable, but only صَحْوٌ, (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb,) though one says of the sky أَصْحَت. (Mṣb.)
صَحْوَةٌ A state [of freedom from intoxication, or] of sensibility, or mental perception. (TA voce سَكْرَةٌ.) يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَأْخُذَهَا بَيْنَ الصَّحْوَةِ وَالسَّكْرَةِ [He desires to take it being in a state between that of sensibility and that of insensibility, or mental perception and inability thereof,] is a prov., applied to him who seeks a thing feigning ignorance while possessing knowledge.
