surprise filled chocolate eggs

i have always loved
those giant chocolate eggs
from italy
this time of year
they line the shelves
of my local
italian market

large and hollow
a handful
of small candies tossed in
the cavernous hole
wrapped in bright mylar paper
easter basket ready

the real joy
is breaking through
the chocolate shell
to see what goodies lay within

this year
i am giving the easter bunny
helping hand

 extra special chocolate
 filled with
toys and jewels
hand chosen
for each recipient

this one
for a little girl
 a milk chocolate shell
molded of tempered chocolate
                                   
dusted with pink luster
in a nest of grass

and...
this one

sealed shut
because 
it has a very special
surprise
for a lucky
young woman
made of bittersweet chocolate
and
dusted in blue
 
  imagine the 
joy
and
surprise
when
these beautiful eggs
are cracked open

trinkets
toys
and
jewels
tumbling
out
a happy easter indeed
