Examples of wispy in a Sentence

  1. Thomas Cravens:

    We know that it's bumping material out of the rings at least 10 times faster than we thought, if it's not being replenished, the rings aren't going to last -- you've got a hole in your bucket.

At some point they gradually drain away unless somehow they're getting new material.

  2. Allyson Gantt:

On a windy day, the cypress trees clatter just a little bit as they brush up against each other.
