by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

What kind of trinity are you?
Someones supposed your peaks represent
Europe, Asia and Africa.
But all of us respect you:
Ceres appeared in your territory
as the first asteroid
seen by the human eye.

Some day I'll take a vacation
at the edge of the Milky Way,
my friend,
and I'll rest in your ... Delta.
