    So in my dream, I was being chased by swarm of locusts. It’s kinda weird because its color coordinated. In the morning, I’m being chased by yellow locust and red locusts in the afternoon or at night. The only time I’m not being chased is when its midnight. The people from my past was also in my dream, as well, as an alien turtle, Disney princesses and villains. My dream was really weird.

  2. I dreamt that i was in my home and I saw myself holding a huge locust (10″-12″) long a brown and there were a few others in the room looking at me but in the dream I remember I don’t like to see them nor let them touch me so I pelt it out the window and went into another room where there were a lot more around my door and windows and even in my curtains these were mostly green but they were starting at me and for some reason the understand when I talk and ask them to leave but the never did they continue to stear at me so I took a pest spray and began spraying them a few flew away but I got up from my sleep

    Last night I had a dream I was on some kind of balcony. I am afraid of heights so am am stuck on this nalcony with nuns on the other balconies when a giant locust appears. They flee and leave me defenseless on this balcony. I am thinking it will eat my head off, however, it is crawling on the ground. The next thing I realize is I can jump off the,balcony as it is not that far off the ground.

  5. I had a dream were I was leaving g from my friends house and I was walking down the street and everything turned bright yellow. I started to hear buzzing and they all started coming. For some reason they where really big as long as the length of my arms. They weren’t attacking me but they could have been attacking others but I looked up I. The clouds and they opened up and I saw a golden gate. The rest of my dream kinda fadded out

  6. Just woke up from a dream where I was in a swarm of locusts, I for some reason knew they were coming so I covered my face with my hoodie and just kept walking, everyone else was running and screaming, but I was still just walking through them, although they were bitting my legs bad and it was painful in the dream, this was all in the end of my dream, before that it went on a long time like a big story in a dream, and the ending, locusts

      I have had a few dreams with threatening locust. One of the dreams the locusts stood upright and where about 8 feet tall. They where eating piles of bloody human bodies sectioned out on tables outside on a bright sun shiny day. It was a nightmare naturally.
