Theme Thursday prompt: brick

Sky soft pink

Above a pale blue

Waves of greyed sage brush

Cover the mesa

Adobe structures can be seen

But often one must look again

As they are so perfectly

Suited to the landscape

Made from the earth

Of clay, water and straw

They disappear into the landscape

Adobe has a long history

Eight thousand years

In the desert

Warm in winter

Cool in summer

Little mud house

Made from the earth

Offers shelter

From rain and sun
