pearls, a south blush even permanent seawater turns transparent once scooped out of its body

Before Blossom

Dropped on soil
I see a flower in future
It whispers
"Have you seen a pair of beautiful eyes?"


Blossom, pollination, fruition, seeding
It's natural lifecycle, and also path to ideal.

When a seed lands on soil, its future is unpredictable.
It may sprout or fall into dormancy.

Octaphilosophy, in our eyes, is a nascent seed.
It's robust and strong to create flavors.
Within this unique fruit, the essence remains.
