The descriptive writing was excellent. I got the title and that was all. The story itself did not make any sense, if you want to bring the reader in then it has to draw them into the MC's struggle, not just with descriptions.
The vivid descriptions of the mother's anxiety and depression finding herself an emptynester is so sad. Some equate it, at the time, as a death.
I got it...I knew all along that you were describing the loud sound of silence...good job!
I got it, too! Sometimes silence can be deafening... especially when you want so desperately to hear those familiar sounds that tell you all your chicks are safely in the nest for the night.
Yes, it was very clear to me from the very beginning. And I agree. Silence can sometimes be deafening.
