The moth makes Evie laugh. It lands on her bare forearm and she brushes her index finger lightly across the brown and gray waves that color its wings. <...>. It lifts away. Upward, upward, and upward the moth goes, and is swallowed by a slice of the sun tangled amid the glossy green leaves twenty feet above Evie’s place among the roots on the ground. Source: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King I am having problem interpreting the bolded. Would a slice of the sun = rays/beams of the sun? What tangled? the month or the slice of sun? Would you say tangled amid or tangled with? Evie's place among the roots on the ground = Evie's place that is among the roots on the ground, right? Thank you.
