Armchair Observatory

O anticrepuscular!
O triangular shadow aqua hue!
Behold in the sky the all-seeing eye.

Moon rises
a rainbow wash above
ice clouds of blue

the dragon breath of
sunset from behind
illuminates and tints her face

and volcanic Mauna Kea lies between
this camera lens this
window to the sky

my screen.
Armchair observations.
