Quod Erat Demonstrandum

Quod Erat Demonstrandum

This is how it works.
After a long indwelling,
shape awareness comes—

kenning what must be
the shape of the solution,
if any exists.

Once that shape is felt,
reason, a sculptor's chisel,
frees the shape from stone.

Thus the solution,
though seeming artificial,
is not made but found.

No mere invention,
no child of human reason,
QED came first.
