The Pelican is stuck for only a moment then it manages to break free. Flying to one of the wires it lands and holds its perch. My friends and I all watch, amazed that the bird seems okay. We are about to return to our conversation when the pelican drops to the ground. Landing in a turn right feeder lane, safe from the immediate flow of traffic.
It's still alive but lying on its back. Stunned perhaps?
"Who wants to save a pelican?" I comment to my friends. One of them leaps up heading for the road and the rest of us follow to retrieve the bird and hopefully bring it to safety and help.
I'm not someone who remembers their dreams very often but when I do it's usually one of those dreams you have in a lucid moment of sleep. Such as early in the morning when something has half woken you up and you just kind of drift back to sleep, unaware that you're sleeping. This makes the dream seem like reality until you wake up and realize it was all just a dream.
This morning I was dreaming about an electrocuted pelican. There was more to the dream than described above. For example I knew exactly who my friends in the dream were but once I woke up their identities became a mystery that I can't recall.
The main road we were near is the main road just up from my home. We were just opposite a new development along that road where there is a right turn feeder lane into a service station. However there are no power lines directly above the feeder lane and there are no power lines as high or as modern as those in my dream.
I'm not much into dream analysis. I know my dreams are often filled with symbols but I rarely take the time to think about what they mean. The pelican dream was just an unusual dream that I thought I'd share. I'll leave it up to those of you that study dreams to suggest what it may mean.
