Layers of a Central Mexican Landscape

On top, a wide azul sky,

atop puffy clouds of grey-white cotton,

floating over blue-green hills

sheltering houses tan and buff, turquoise or rose,

maybe a mustard yellow;

in front of them the scruffy shrubs and needled cacti

rising from the neutral earth.
