Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: Whatever words I fancy

Seems that it is a bit of a free for all this week and I can use whatever words I want.  How curious.  the limitations are usually rather liberating in an odd sort of way and complete freedom just makes me want to be even more stupid than usual.

I decided to open the nearest book and use the first word on page 58 and the last on page 101.  the book was Cosmic Traitor (Perry Rhodan 26) by Kurt Brand.  The words are THOUGHTS and MILKY.  They made me think of an Astronaut…


Once more to the stars

mind strays to places unknown

thoughts of escaping

the shackles of gravity

and his quite annoying wife
