Post – Leibniz cinquain

Monad Cinquain

Many souls float,
reflecting each other.
They perceive all, but do not see


The cinquain has the form of  5 lines with 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 syllables.  The inventor of this lovely form had the unfortunate name of “Crapsey.”  On the other hand, I studied math from a very reputable textbook written by “Dull and Dull.”
