In front of my house is the field, a distance is the sea, and the forest is close to the side. Fresh air, diverse nature, charming scenery.

Walk a few tens of meters to the forest, there you can bathe yourself with so many trees, flowers, birds chirping, jungle roosters crowing, cicadas and slugs – each season a color, a sound…The forest is tolerant to all of our grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters .

 “In the first grade, I carried a heavy burden of fruit to school, after selling it, I went to the classroom, carefree and happy like many friends at that time. To go to school is to study hard. Summer vacation for 3 months is to play hard .

Enough games to hunt crabs to catch fish, herd cows, swim in streams, fly kites, come in and pick mushrooms, pick myrtle fruit, buy sweet fruit to eat, until the mouth turns purple or invite each other to go wading in the lagoon to pick water spinach, pick guns, and pick lotuses. , catching frogs, digging crickets… Childhood days with endless joy”, Mr. Huan recalled.

Until now, Huan’s hometown still retains much of such peace. Many people left the village and the forest to go to the city to make a living. The forest is still there, waiting for the exiled children to return from time to time.Knowing that her son loves the forest, Huan’s mother every time she sends things to the city for her children, she also picks and packs some wild fruits, when the fruit is in the basket, when the fruit explodes… It tastes good, but eats to remember and nostalgic about old scenes, old people, friends of the same age who have grown up and gone their separate ways.
