Godly Hermaneutics

According to the Living God...

Jeremiah 1:11-12   11 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, "Jeremiah, what do you see?" And I said, "I see an almond branch."  12 Then the LORD said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it."

"sounds like" - is a perfectly acceptable form of understanding something

NLT 1 Kings 18:44 Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, "I saw a little cloud about the size of a hand rising from the sea." Then Elijah shouted, "Hurry to Ahab and tell him, 'Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don't hurry, the rain will stop you!'"

"looks like" is also acceptable

so i don't see what the heck is wrong with allegorizing and making quite generic allusions to both things in Scripture and creation...
