Björn hosts dVerse tonight, asking us to depict silences and pauses in poetry. I chose one of mine to show how silence can fill an empty space (using ellipsis),  giving meaning to these few words already written.

Original Text (by me)
This
vase was
made with care
A delicate pattern of pink
bougainvillea snake from its
base to it’s elegant neck. This vase
holds oceans of love, galaxies of hope and a nebula of faith. This vase was made to withstand only the pressure that love brings. Crack it and slowly
so slowly, it will leak. This vase
is me and I am this vase.
Crack it and slowly
so slowly
Love
Depletes
