When The Sun appears in the East

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 you smile
And something more:
I want to bow to you
With my heart’s adoration.
