Pinata Promise
Norma Wightman


Morning is a bright
colored piŮata,
hanging high,
promising surprises
that fall on your head.

If the day crashes,
pick up pieces,
sort through odds and sods,
rescue whatís important
if youíre lucky,
taste something sweet.

This uplifting poem is the perfect fit for April poetry month. I love the metaphor of morning being a pinata "hanging high, promising surprises that fall on your head."

And sometimes, there's a fun toy or a shiny object as well!

In an age often characterized by darkness of rhetoric, Norma has drawn back the curtain on light and hope . . . she has given us peek into innocence. Dancing along with the joy of this poem. Thank you Norma!
