Hi,

As i read your other things i found that you live in a countryside . And, most of the material i read of yours is about events related to country life.

The point i wanna emphasize here is: the passion, imagery and narration i find your such writings make me believe that penning down such things is your "Forte".

i really enjoyed this piece a lot. Especially the part where you describe the scenic beauty, the flow of water and the surroundings. Hats off.

Keep on Writing.

General Disclaimer: This review reflects my opinion and is given with the intention of being constructive and encouraging. I hope you find this review helpful.

Emotional Feel:
Emotionally i feel it is a bit weak composition or it may be so that it continues.
Personal Experience:
None. Thanks God !

Narrative and Event oriented.
Imagery:
Good.
Tone:

Setting:
Sea and beach.
Liking:
i like the way the incidents are captured in words.
Word Choice:
Excellent !
Any Recommendation:
the whole composition in mid of the story seems bit loose. it should have been bit elaborated. the situation from first alarm of storm to its final should be enhanced till it reaches its climactic height. then it should be concluded. i think ending is too early.
Overall:
A fine piece for practice.
