Example #1:
Sky Flowers
Circumference unlimited
As flowers in the sky
Expand;
We stand in awe, inhibited,
As bright explosives fly
From land.
July wears flowers in the sky
Spreading above the town
In flight;
We stand in awe, ready to cry
Aloud as they resound
This night.

My Example Attempt
This Night     (Memento)
 
The faces of the children glow
expecting old Saint Nick
this night,
with wonder only children know
and hoping to sleep quick
tonight.
