Support pole for front door awning is loose


I live in a rental property and promised my landlord I would look into this issue. There is a wood awning mounted above the front door of the house.
The front of this awning is supported by 2 wooden poles. One of the poles is submerged into concrete, the other pole I just noticed is loose and was never submerged into the concrete foundation. (Please see attached picture).
I am wondering if there is any easy way to secure the bottom of the 2nd wood pole without cutting into the concrete foundation.
Thanks

Get a concrete anchor. Drill a hole in the concrete the same diameter as the anchor bolt. Attach an L bracket.

3, L brackets, use Tap, Con screws in the concrete. You'll need a hammer drill.
