This was an attempt at making a Nazo-type puzzle. Nazo puzzles are lateral thinking puzzles, centered around a single neat observation/realisation, as a way to let you find that interesting realisation too.

What is the 5-character answer that has been covered?

Image with text divided on two sides of the picture, where each line is a pair of strings. In reading order, ...UN / --------N, ......G.... / L---W, Y.... / N---, .....NK / FL---A-, and DA....... / ?????. The final line is missing the right half of the pair.

The answer is:

D---- (DOT in morse code (D --- -) ) !

Taking the

red dots and blue dashes as morse code*, we have:
SUN | MOON
HIGH | LOW
YES | NO
SINK | FLOAT
DASH | ?????
Which are all opposites!
So the missing entry is DOT, the opposite of a DASH in morse code; which in the current format is these 5 characters: D---- (thanks caPNCApn for pointing out my initial goof; I had typed this up too fast without reading it carefully).
