Day Twelve: prose – excess = poetry

Day Twelve and the prompt is to write something in great detail and then removing anything that doesn’t need to be there, to create a poem. I have removed quite a bit of what was left, as it ended up like a simple list/recipe!
I made one of these yesterday so it was fresh in my mind.

First, fragrant chermoula,
heady with honeyed spice.
Golden squash and sultanas
soften gently,
sink into saffron haze.
Lava-like, bubbles rise and burst,
Release the faintest
scent of rose.
