fireflies and stars

Firefly twinkle and glows
Soft breeze in bamboo grove blows
The stars look down at them
Musing if earth is mirroring them

Rules of a Quatrain:
Did you notice that a quatrain is formed by two rhyming couplets? Easy! This pattern is called a a b b. The first line rhymes with the second (sky and by) and the third line rhymes with the fourth line (edge and ledge). Other quatrain patterns are a b a b,
a b b a, and a b c b.

may be the distance,
gives this clarity of vision,
the clarity blocked,
by too much closeness.

Man has amassed enough power,
to destroy the earth more than once,
in the name of war and science,
are not they bound to practice caution?
