New Mexico~

Kaolin ceramics shelved for display
A framed mirror suggests a window into time
Fortifications in a continuum surround this fortress

Inside a Southwestern style is secured
Bulldozing nature for architectural delight
Rich in warm tones and textures of stucco
Baroque oval portals lead into substructures

Endearing pine stripped.....stained to perfection 
Strategically placed beamed ceilings finesse 
Whitewashed antlers hang above a fireplace
Not a hunters home but a setting of one once known

A water well stands with an antique pump 
As an unyeilding sun drenches the broken claylike ground
Genuinely revealing a life long past
In Beautiful New Mexico a Southwestern home  is found

~This was inspired by Brian….and his Cameo piece~I hadn't used or seen the 
word KAOLIN in some time...and it reminded me of the west....hence, I used the 
word first and went from there~
