June, I Said Hello to the Sun

When the first wave of summer heat camein June, I set out alone

to greet the Sun

I wanted to see how faraway the horizon stretched

I wanted to know how tall maples and pines grew

I relished exuberant color of green

I rode on swift gusts of wind

The dandelion on the sidewalk – whom I secretly loved

nodded to me without knowing my ambition

Roaming clouds – whom I adored unreservedly,

joined my journey without knowing my destination

Oh June, I said hello to the Sun

with mighty zest

telling her that I was ready to write

another song of

myself
