Scarlet sun rise above

Shine the autumn with your love

Cast the water in apricot hues

Cover the sky with shades of bittersweet

You have one crimson eye

And one of silver

Great beast lurking to pounce

Dusty sea lip laps

As the world is still and quiet

Before humans buzz on the city streets

Before the world is filled with countless heart beats


A Crime

To

Think this

Happened here too

 

Something

A horrible

Very terrible thing

 

Fear

It will

Take you far

 

Difference

Will not

Nothing we do

 

Affect

What will

Happen in this

 

Place

Of dreams

Of many nightmares

 

You

Sleep in

The corner of

 

This

Room of

Red and black

 

Blood

Death, coals

Heat, hell, pain

 

It

Is the

Hell that expands

Pasta Rosso di Paprica

I love pasta. I can eat in pretty much any form, any day, but sometimes it gets boring. So today I improvised with something new. What I used was

2 tomatoes
half a paprika
a can of passata
French herbs
salt
basil
oregano

It was quite simple really, I cut the tomatoes and the paprika into small pieces and fried them seasoning them with a pinch of French herbs. After the paprika and tomato had become lighter red, I heated up the passata in a kettle and added the fried vegetables. I spiced it with a pinch of salt, basil and oregano. Then I mixed it until it was boiling lightly. I turned down the heat to a low temperature while letting the sauce cook for 30 minutes.

Then of course, I cooked some pasta. The one I used was called lumaconi and are shaped lice very big shells.

Best eaten warm. Enjoy!
