I got homesick …

I got homesick a feeling, which I could not instantly identify. I’d left the reserve in haste, as if fleeing from something. From what, I do not know. Much later I found out what values I’d left behind. The reserve was where I had a sense of belonging. It was where I made connections to the earth, and to the people. I missed speaking my language.
