Walking at night in the snow
After dark,
clouds wrap around the valley
like a white bowl turned over.
Veiled heaven reflects
city lights
inward.

I walk alone,
boots crunching
through snow.
Frozen breath hangs close—
tiny clouds caught
by my gravity.

I look up
searching for stars.
But tonight heaven stays veiled
and every guiding light
reflects inward.
