The broken heel served
as a simple reminder
It's time to wear flats
Cheryl is a widow who enjoys writing about current events, soap spoilers and baby boomer nostalgia. Tips are greatly appreciated.
How does it work?
Lol, I've had this happen to me before. Except it wasn't my heel. It was the sole of my flats 🤣🤣🤣

If an alien from a galaxy far
Riding on a bright shining star
Appeared to me upon the earth
Light years from the land of its birth

Looking to dry the tears in your eyes,
but it's nowhere for free
Do you know I miss your mind?
I'm glad you are talking to me

The virelai is a French poetic form with alternating rhymes and line lengths. Here are basic guidelines: + nine lines per stanza, + lines one, two, four, five, seven, and eight have five syllables
+ lines three, six, and nine have two syllables
+ the five-syllable lines rhyme with each other and the two-syllable lines rhyme with each other to make the following rhyme pattern: aabaabaab
+ the end rhyme for the short lines continues on in the following stanza
+ the final stanza’s short-line end rhyme should be the same as the long-line end rhyme in the opening stanza (to complete the end-rhyme circle)
Note on stanzas: This form can contain as few as two stanzas to infinity (if you could write that many). Writer’s Digest, by Robert Lee Brewer

I don't get people who don't get dogs.
I don't like all dogs, just like I don't like all people. They have distinct personalities, and some are infinitely more likeable than others. Some are probably basically decent, but seem to have been poorly raised. But on the whole, I'm a dog person, and I'm going to spell it out to you exactly why.
