Birch: The body that shines, that takes the sun that covers the sky in a white sea, and makes it into a line, buffeted by waves. It draws the eye, as all landings for eyes, all islands, do.  This is the body that is all skin, that sheds it (and so we have bark) to reveals golden bone, the sun itself, rising.

Ásbyrgiskogur, Ísland
