Men stand to the right
Women stand to the left.
Bowing and crossing themselves.
The clacking sound of the klepalo replacing the bells during this time of sadness and reflection.
The priest strides back and forth swinging incense among the faithful.
The soft susurration of the priests chanting, haunting and contemplative.
The icons look down.
The people bow down, looking for hope and peace?
And in homes across Serbia, eggs boiled, dyed.
Some will be eaten this coming Sunday.
Some to watch over the home for the coming year.
Good Friday on belgradestreets.
