Composing Using Chord Charts - Creating "Egrets"

What is a chord chart you ask? It's just bars of music with chord changes on top. It's an amazing tool you can use to quickly capture musical ideas.

For example, the piece "Egrets" is just an 8-bar phrase repeated twice (after a 2-bar introduction).

This could actually be the (A) section to a more extended version of the same piece; that is, if I wanted to extend the piece.
