Butterfly Cinquain 9

leeks just
on the turn with
manky scallions and
potatoes and celery; what
a good
soup can be made from old food if
you take the time to chop
out the bad bits –

Wednesday Words – Lemon Zest & Mint

4 September, 2013
Dynamic scent of lemon zest mingles with freshness of just picked mint leaves. The colours mingle in my mind; loud yellow, rain-spangled green. Once shredded, the mint takes on a darker tone, sweetens, seems to compliment the lemon zing in the air. Then the onions and leeks soften, sweetly caramelise, fragrant yet not clashing with the uncooked scents of lemon and mint. Later, the rising bread bakes, overcomes all other scents with yeasty, crusty breadiness.
