There are many choices
Offered grammatically to us
In the punctuation of endings:
An ellipses begs us to wait
A comma takes only a breath of rest
Before continuing forward, making lists, categorizing
A semi-colon binds the unrelated, creates relationships
In it's forward motion-- asks us to consider connectivity.
The period, though.
That's a different story.
It gives us permission
To think about something new.
An ending as a chance to let something else live?
