Experimental Poetry Form: alternating four and five letter words

Today’s experimental poetry form has the criteria of alternating four and five letter words.  Other than this, the form has no criteria.  One way to use the form, as shown below, would be to apply it to another form.  In this case, the form was applied to the haiku form.

 

Some paths flow about,
seen among cool light blue stars,
eyes stare over hills

 

The form is not difficult to use, however some thought must be given to word choice, both to find words that match the correct letter count, and to find words that make sense in order.  Applying the form to another form, does increase the difficulty some.
