Some pens keep secrets.
If no one else sees it, why make it beautiful?
Because it makes the ink ripple as it swims.
Because it traces curves in the air as it falls.
Because it blooms into words.
Because a petal is always welcome.
(Nakaya maki-e converters are the pen world’s equivalent of exquisite lingerie. No one else knows you’re wearing it, but your smile has a little more sparkle.)
