The Skins of a Dream



The Skins of a Dream

Paper birch, way back in the woods,
      whose barks
            curl back like the creamy

skins of a dream...

Thanks, Jane B. I have loved John Thompson's poetry for a very long time. He captured images with simplicity and density. It's a tragedy he died so young.
