Poseidon, out of thankfulness, to the dolphin Delphinus, placed a dolphin image in the heavens near the celestial equator.. I wonder how things turned out for Amphitrite, who listened to the dolphin and accepted Poseidon’s wooing.

high above Delphinus
now swims in milky waters
a new celestial home
a god’s  gratitude
