When The Sun Appears In The East

When the sun appears in the East,

I make friends with my poetry.

I see a golden disc

Right above the blue sea,

A red hibiscus is smiling at me.

Is there anybody on earth, O Sun,

Who does not long for your smile?

No, nobody.

Everybody wants your smile.

I too want your smile

And something more:

I want to bow to you

With my heart's adoration.
