.........It had been quiet,the backyard in winter.So quiet that if you looked straight up you could hear the sounds of the universe.The explosions on Jupiter and the storms on the  Saturn and the thin slivers of mythical ice that you imagined froze ever harder on Mars.You could hear the crash of meteors and the flares in the sun and the birthing pains of planets in galaxies far,far away......
