What am I hoping for?

As I was driving west last evening, I saw a shooting star (I never see shooting stars!)… and I wished upon it. 
Lucien, Mississippi (Franklin County) iron bridge over McCall creek with winter snow on a sunny morning. Frosty trees in the background of this beautiful landscape.

The sky was pale blue deepening to navy, and the bare tree branches stretched hopefully above the pale horizon. The star fell behind the string-like latticing of a walk-over bridge, and I choose to see that as an additional good omen: 
  • the star to wish on, 
  • the bridge to cross over, 
  • the trees meditatively waiting for spring.
