Please fix this sentence.


Recommended Posts

If you want to make it clearer, you could do this:

 

A light rain trickled through the fall leaves, orange like a sunset, hanging above my head. 

 

Personally, depending on the type of writing, I like the free flowing original.

A light rain trickled through the orange fall leaves hanging above my head like a sunset.

 

This is a perfectly nice, correct sentence. 

 

But I don't like it near as well as the original. 

 

That one sounded so much more romantic :)

The original is a run-on though, right?

 

It reads as if "like a sunset" refers to "trickled".

Poetic license--I find the original quite evocative.

 

There is cool stuff you can do with language when you dare to step outside of arbitrarily constructed rules :)
