Sentence a Day

Her Sentence

It rested on the tousled quilts on two large beds at the end of the room, on the great spinning wheel and the small on the home-made loom in the corner.

From Indian Captive by Lois Lenski. The author uses the repetition of prepositions and an asyndeton to describe how the morning sun falls upon the furniture within the house.

My Sentence

Kate sat on the wrinkled rags on three small rocks at the edge of the sidewalk, on the amazing traveled road and the highway on the man-made interstate in the town.
