monkey's wedding

simultaneous rain and sunshine. This informal South African term probably comes from a Portuguese expression translated as "vixen's wedding", which has the same meaning, but there is also a possibility that it entered South African English from a Zulu phrase.

I like this much and thought it would be interesting to see this employed as a metaphor.

Any takers?

Karen, this is one I'll follow for sure -- should be interesting.  But, right now, I've got writer's block.  Take care.  Hope you had a Happy 4th and didn't have to do too much sitting.....ouch!

But, who knows? I  might be adventurous if I drink another glass of vino.

a sunshower....
when rain and sun join hands
they reach above the commonplace  
and commune with a higher power
