The Hairy Legs Dream

Image by anankkml via

I recently dreamt my legs were really hairy -
hairy like a brown bear's are - pretty dang scary.
Thankfully I have friends who interpret dreams.
They help me figure out what everything means.
It's likely I was fearing NaPoWrioMo defeat,
perhaps worrying that I couldn't complete,
a full month of poems without going crazy
though certainly not due to acting lazy.
So I thought I'd twist that "fear" into a rhyme
and save the hairy legs dream for another time.

My NaPoWriMo poem #8


  1. So, mentally, you were donning your bear apparel, a suit of bravery to face your upcoming challenge?

    THen what would it have meant if you'd dreamed you were naked?

    (Or bare apparel - LOL!)

  2. Haha. I think you've got it backwards. (Confusing poem?) I am told the hairy legs means I was afraid of something (or that I'm dominating my relationship according to the internet). Still not sure what being naked would have meant... I'd have to consult my sources. :)

  3. Okay, let me know if you're looking for source voluteers. :)

  4. That dream sounds pretty darn funky.
    Maybe you dreamt that you were half monkey.

  5. A great poem! To dream of such hair, must have been a bit of a scare!

  6. Legs represent your strength and walk and hair represents covering or protection!!! Hair is also your GLORY...

    So, it looks like you are WALKING in the right direction!!! ;)

    Great dream!

  7. @Eric - I am always happy to have more sources for dream interpretation (even if made up). :)

    @Bryan - Nah, the half monkey is my boyfriend. LOL :)

    @Jessica - It did bring a scare to see so much hair down there! :)

    @Farfalla Dreams - You sound like you know what you're talking about! :) And... I love your interpretation! :) Thanks!!

  8. Maybe your dream was showing you how strong you are and that you will complete your challenge?????

  9. To me it's saying that you're too busy to even shave your legs - Now ET on days like that! that's what slacks and jeans are for - so keep writing :)

  10. Wow, interesting dream interpretation!
    But at least you got a cool poem out of it and you are still going strong on the challenge! :-)

  11. Love your rhyming prose. Very enjoyable to read.

  12. @Mary - I certainly hope that is the meaning! :)

    @SJ - Yep, long skirts or pants for me! LOL.

    @SweepyJean - That was the plan! I still need another burst of momentum. Hopefully tonight or tomorrow...

    @Matty - Thanks! I see you became a new follower. :) So glad you decided to join the smiley rhyming fun. :)

  13. I'd rather dream of hairy legs than hairy spiders! LOL

  14. Laughing...This is so funny. Thaks for sharing.

    I enjoy reading everyone's comments.

  15. @Jinksy - I'm not a big fan of spiders either... but they're in my yard quite often. :)

    @Andy - I'm glad you got a laugh out of my dream! The comments made it WELL worth writing. :)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
