You could have a big dipper   

an ode to ellipses... by Dane Lyn




there’s an inherent power in…

leaving gaps…

places where the reader’s perceptions…

become fairies and flit skimming...

along neural pathways to meet…

up with authorial intention...

to launch into unexplored…

concepts, I’ve always been partial to…

ellipses because they remind me…

of glitter and stars sprinkling…

whimsy.
