The rose appeared ghost-like and limbless, floating above the loose yarn
like a spiraled pattern edited free of its originator's hands.

The discontinuous arm of the subject revealed the weft - traversed and well wrought - upon the absent warp of the welcoming tapestry. Despite lacking the woven imprisonment, the weft held structure. Its elemental regulation held unknown relationships together beyond their immediate unrecognized unfolding.
It was as if the tapestry in its undone state modeled the open doorway to unrealized embodiment. Or it was as if it was only and only that.

The rose was translucent skin.
