A dark night through/from a watery eye seems as beautiful as pearls scattering here and there in the sky, and as mysterious as will o’ the wisps dotting the darkest universe.



HI,

I wrote the above on my blog to practice writing. Is it right to use either through or from in the context? Thanks.

    HI,
    Sorry! My bad!
    I googled and found there was no dewy eye but a watery eye.
    So, which should I use to fit in the following, through or from? Thanks.

    You could use either "through" or "from". I assume you understand the difference in these two prepositions. So, saying "through" or "from" mean different yet similar things.
