The Firefly Within

As I yearn for the yearning galaxies
Galaxies wreathed; wreathing ecstasies
A firefly burns itself to death
In my hand…breathes its last breath
Alas! O God of heavens! You rest
Not on earth, but in heavens
O ignorant self-indulged me!
Unaware of this self-less death
Raving on in volcanic spree…
