May Day

The first day of May

on the way to work today

my shoes fell apart someway

they were very old

truth be told

the bottom separated from the top

I didn't have time to stop

I didn't want to be late

so the shoe situation had to wait

soon as I got in I found some duct tape

to keep the shoes together seemed to work great

I joked I should do a duct tape commercial

so many uses and this one was critical

I needed to use

my shoes

at least until help arrived

on their last legs the shoes thrived

got my husband to bring me another pair

problem solved so there

the rest of the day

it was gonna be one of those days

in a daze

what else could go wrong

don't ask...story is too long

suffice it to say

I can't wait til the end of May

if the rest of the month is like today

May Day

May Day

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a true story...truth is stranger than least had a good laugh about it ...there is a first time for everything...but I bet this situation is pretty least I hope so...geez, what a day...but managed to laugh about it all and make fun of myself and the was just too weird...even for me and believe me lots of weird stuff has happened to me...Oh, ya, I was telling a store manager,Nate, about my dilemma and he was the one that said May Day so thanks for the inspiration for the title of this poem, Nate... VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22): You might have to set aside your calendar and throw away the maps. Forget about whatever plans you've made, for today is up for grabs. You may feel overwhelmed by the uncertainty, for you really don't know what's going to happen. The more you struggle to make a situation go the way you planned, the more the rules will change before your eyes. This is a lesson in letting go.  
discuss   LIBRA (Sep 23 - Oct 22): Today holds potential for great spiritual truths to arrive at your door, gift wrapped and delivered by the love of your life. Then, again, the day also holds great potential for illusions that end up in disappointment. Fantasy and spirituality seem to go hand-in-hand, but both can be very real. Don't be too hard on yourself now. The confusion will pass as you refocus your attention on the work at hand
