A choir of church bells tolled just before midnight to usher in Easter’s arrival here in Trogir, Croatia. The fervor with which the bells rang was reminiscent of what we heard the night that the Catholic church chose a new pope.
Indeed, spring is officially in the air with dogs on safari in fields of yellow and green on the nearby island of Čiovo,
and the city’s skyline cloaked in blue.
There are pipe cleaner-textured mimosa flowers at the market,
and chocolate bunnies on store shelves, awaiting new basket homes.
The city’s crest is fashioned out of pansies beside the Kamerlengo Fortress,
with spring shadows and fragrant blooms abound.
Residents are taking their time,
soaking up every splendid detail of spring…
Happy Easter, or as they say here in Croatia, Sretan Uskrs!
