Watching the Stock Market

Watching the Stock Market

Orange day lilies on the rise,
look for short-term 24 hour glowing gains.

Red roses in for a longer turn upwards and
the white yarrow, long steady gain there.

Zucchini flowers pay fritatta dividends
and the grapevines — bullish for

dividends around September 29,
my mother, Carmela’s, 96 birthday.

As for the tomatoes and peppers
plump gains with August ripening.

Iris down but hold long, with
options for next year’s new growth.

Rich investment, pink and purple petunias,
well nurtured and watered, blooming blooming
blooming, until our first frost.
