Examples of wispy in a Sentence

  1. Allyson Gantt:

    There's just something magical about this place with the clear dark water below and the soft wispy cypress needles above, the cypress trees are usually covered with bromeliads, spiky air plants that gather water from dew and rain and simply use their host trees for support. On a windy day, the cypress trees clatter just a little bit as they brush up against each other.

  2. 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. Jupiter probably had a ring that evolved into the current wispy ring, and it could be for similar reasons. Rings do come and go. At some point they gradually drain away unless somehow they're getting new material.
