Unexpected Grounding

The pulcan sang so sweetly    
made connection with my heart    
a song-line flowed discreetly    
like a science hid in art  
   
And subtly came vocations    
completely off the wall    
as meaning altercations    
blew assumptions of the fall  
   
Determining a journey    
raises symbols in the air    
as turning hurdy-gurdies    
shoot baselines of despair  
   
A strange felicitation    
deals cards to play again    
and pulcans find elation    
as potential inks the pen.

Author's Note
Had an accident. 'A gift to reassess priorities in life' seems to be the best option to come to terms with it. I will have to grow into being a different person, hopefully a wiser one.

‘pulcan’ — a colourful mythical bird that came to me out of the dream-space very early one morning as the dawn chorus in the garden started; somewhere between a pelican and a falcon I guess.
