Sukošan

Updated: Jan 4

There is a little town along the sea

her beauty, she calls to me


The narrow streets lead me to her

she calls me softly, a sweet whisperer


The road breaks open and the view stuns me

a fishing town bordered by palm trees


The town wakes early, It’s people stroll the streets

stopping along the way to greet everyone they meet


Friendly chatter fills the air

in the moment, not thinking of elsewhere


Men carry their rods and undock their boats

women going to church in their fur coats


The smell of salt consumes the air, thick and tasteful

The cobblestone handled with care, never wasteful


The sun begins to shine, early risers already done their chores

Children’s voices heard as they bust through the doors


Families swinging in the parks, friends filling the cafés

Soaking in the sun, laughing away their days


This town has a place in my heart, I visit her often

when I’m feeling hard, I go to her to soften


She is full because of the people who consume her

they care for her with love and never misuse her


Surrounded by love she welcomes all wanderers

and fears not any conquerers


For she has stood strong for longer than you and I comprehend

a secret hidden just around the bend


The small city along the sea

her beauty, forever calls to me.

Neighboring the village I live in is the beautiful and quaint town of Sukošan. It is the closest town to us that is along the sea so naturally we visit her often. We spent many summers swimming on her beaches, drinking coffees in her cafes and strolling her streets at night. There are just some places that have a certain energy, a certain vibration that feels just right. For me, Sukošan is one of those places. The air is rich in salt, the locals are friendly, and the water is a healing hue of blue. My husband and I often say ”It's always sunny in Sukošan” because that is truly how it feels every time we are there. The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing and time stands still.
