as the window opens light

This short line impresses bright light. So the EarthLan translation takes a visual effect to emphasize light. In this pictograph, I tried to open the window of my heart, and then light shot into it. In Earth Lan, the base-overlay of heart-light means hope. Open your window, so hope can flow into your heart!

EarthLan uses special brackets for multiple purposes. This translation has an example of brackets that bind a sentence showing how it modifies in the total line.
