All Details Great and Small

The Devil's in the Details, El Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe, Valencia, Spain
Meticulous order
Black chairs on black tables
White chairs on white tables
Perfectly placed
Deliciously spaced

Every detail attended to
Clean lines and sturdy grace
All reflected in polished stone

But later
I notice

A chair is missing
Crumbs scattered on a table

In a lifetime dedicated
To observing the nuances
Of all details great and small
I wonder

What is the larger world
All that I’ve seen?
Or all that I’ve seen
But never saw…

The world I know
Seems very small

Delicious Details
