As we've seen, hair is often wispy. So is grass: it's made up of many tiny pieces that float around. You could grab onto a wisp of grass: a single, slender blade. This cat is playing with a few wisps of grass.
Finally, you can call something small and delicate a wisp even if you can't see it. You might feel a wisp of breeze on your cheek: a tiny, gentle movement in the air. You might have a wisp of an idea: a tiny little possibility of an idea. You might feel a wisp of excitement: a small, tender, momentary tidbit of excitement that floats away almost immediately.
