[B-Greek] Possible ellipsis in Jn 1:1

Lately this idea came to be. Is it possible to understand Jn 1:1 this way?
EN ARCHi hHN hO LOGOS KAI hO LOGOS hHN PROS TON QEON
KAI hWS hO QEOS (PATHR) hHN QEOS
KAI QEOS hHN hO LOGOS
Here, I have added on the second line what might have been an ellipsis
(on the semantic level).
Did I put Greek correctly? Should I remove KAI at the beginning of
this clause? Something may be better than KAI on the third line?
I wanted to say 'as the God (Father) is God, so is the Logos' and
here I take the anarthrous QEOS 'God' with adjectival meaning in a
sense of 'God-being'.
Thank you for help.
