A wish awaits, resting with the rain on your window.

Several years ago, I dreamt that I was throwing coins into a pond, hoping to bribe my way to a wish. As each coin hit the water, it created small bubbles that grew and grew, until eventually they rose and became airborne. Inside some bubbles was an egg that became a tadpole, then a froglet, then an adult frog. When the bubble burst, the winged frog--a wish realized--flew away, free. Not all of the bubbles contained eggs, for not all wishes are granted, but those that did all grew into wishing frogs, save for a few that remained regular or even irregular frogs. No doubt they representing the "That's not quite what I meant" aspect of wishing!
