The grave of dreams

You are spinning and wondering in the wilderness. Emptiness spreads through seven heavens. Silence howling. Icebergs crackling behind.

Standing at the red cliff of the mountain, your heart is breathing faint and fast. Dead sky crumbles into cloudbursts.


A nightmare.


Resurrected from the nightmare you grasp your dear one’s hand with a tight clasp. And you weep over the near ones buried under nameless graves in the fierce waves.


Roast Chicken on a bed of Chive blossoms





Chicken wings ... hot!


P.S. Marinate the whole or cut-up  skin-on chicken with only four ingredients: tomato ketchup, olive oil, salt and red chilli powder. Measurement depends on your taste buds, kitchen and common sense. Let it rest in the fridge for a few hours. Then roast at 400 degree fahrenheit for about an hour. Roasting time may slightly vary based on the size of the bird and your oven. Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds or fresh herbs.


Hot legs!


“Which is the true nightmare, the horrific dream that you have in your sleep or the dissatisfied reality that awaits you when you awake?”

  1. You do so much good by posting your beautiful words and pictures. They say that trauma (national, local and personal) can lead to great creativity. I hope that in your case ‘they’ are wrong.

    • Thank you, dear C, for your heart-warming words ❤ Lets hope and pray that war-monger, business tycoon rulers start bombarding rose petals on enemy-land with every single airstrike they launch 🙂

  2. This looks wonderful, Nusrat. It’s reminiscent of a dish I made using tomato jam and I cannot wait to give this a try.
    May compassion fill the hearts of our leaders.

    • Amen to your last sentence ❤ Tomato ketchup/sauce indeed is a magic-base for a lot of dishes. Did you get a chance to try this recipe? – Thanks a ton for stopping by ❤
