Cat in La Alberca, Spain

Students - I just returned from a week in La Alberca, Spain, as part of a program that included both Spanish and English speaking adults. It was a beautiful time, and in one short week, all of us became good friends. Now, we are all back or heading back to our own homes, knowing how far away we all live from each other, wondering if we will ever meet again. It reminded me of my childhood days at summer camp, when a week can begin with complete strangers and end with dear friends.
So, today's poem is about the real feelings I have in my heart right now. Though I took many actual photographs of the time with my new Spanish and Anglo friends, I also took pictures with my heart. And those will always be with me.
What feelings are in your heart right now? There are probably many, feelings right in the living room of your heart, and feelings in the attic too. Poke around. You might just find a poem idea in there.
