Words & Pictures: Sunflowers

There’s a sea of sunflowers in a park in Montgomery County, MD, visited just after their peak this weekend.

And some accompanying poetry from “Letters to Walt Whitman” by Ronald Johnson.

let us burrow in
to a susurration, the dense starlings,

of the real—
the huge
sunflowers waving back at us,

as we move

—the great grassy world

that surrounds us,
singing.
