S: How can Peace be Gained? By Jasmine Mortazavi

BC: About me I am from England and moved to America for two years of my life. Some of my poems relate to me and the experiences I have had in life. The poem about gymnastics was taken from the fact that I have been doing gymnastics for about 7 years now. The poem about New York is from when I went to New York at new years and it was absolute chaos. Every single poem is related to peace somehow. I am 12 years old. I also really like animals, I have two cats and one dog at home. I wrote my narrative poem on page 6-7 about animals.

2: Haiku | The Wind She blows through the air Leaving a cold trace behind Constantly moving | The Beach I walk across sand And am in tropical heat With blistering feet

3: The Wind- A metaphor is used in this poem, explaining that the wind is a woman. A metaphor is when something is given the form of something it is not. The other poetic device is imagery. Imagery is when the reader gets an image in their head using the five senses according to what the poem is trying to say. The poem is about how the wind is a creature, pestering people as she leaves her cold air behind. The image of the wind is as if she never stops moving. You can almost see the wind moving quickly through the air and purposely making everything cold. The Beach- The poetic devices in this imagery and end rhyme. End rhyme is rhyming words that are found at the ends of different lines in a poem. In the poem what the end rhyme helps to say is that the sand is so hot that someone is getting blistering feet. The reader should feel that the person wasn't expecting the heat of the sand and all of a sudden was in great pain.

4: What is peace? Peace is a flying dove Above the land, Spreading peace throughout the world She is a light in the midnight sky Although she is shy, She is made up of gold And can never do wrong With wings that are beautiful and long She is beaten down but never falls She flies above the waterfalls Spreading hope, For a future unstained by war She soothes mankind And helps everyone be of one mind Peace is a flying dove She heals wounds and sorrows And never gives up We must protect the flying dove With all our strength, Our faith And never give up

5: What is Peace- The poetic device used in this poem is a metaphor, and also an end rhyme. This is when I described a flying dove as peace. That peace is always helping people and the world. The effect on the reader is that peace is all around us watching over us. Always having hope. The poem should also make the reader feel that even though the dove protects us, we need to try and help to protect her as well. She is not just any dove and she has something special, which is why we cannot let her die.

6: Swinging among trees, Or prowling down below It was a normal day in the Amazon Rainforest When suddenly, Intrusion Everything was chaos The animals in the trees, And the animals prowling down below were forced to move The trees were falling The trees were calling, For help Screaming and shouting The animals were pouting The animals moved on Disturbed and homeless Absolutely clueless, Of what to do They growled They snarled They fought against the thought, Of losing their lives The monkeys kept swinging The jaguars kept walking All was lost and they kept on moving They followed their instincts | Animals Everywhere

7: Though soon enough the animals were going to find a replacement home, Those ignorant men were still moving Leaving more and more animals with nothing Following the path of the animals that were fleeing They laughed and drank with grins on their faces Though they knew what they were doing, They didn't know how many creatures they were hurting Days had past and they had stopped to shelter When suddenly, Just over the horizon, There was a beautiful river Shimmering and glistening Full of life and things to do, With trees all around The birds flew The jaguars ran While the monkeys swung on the only trees there Peace was all around the beautiful river And once again, The animals had food and shelter

8: Animals everywhere- This poem is a narrative poem. A narrative poem is when the writer is telling a story throughout the poem. Animals everywhere is supposed to tell the story of the animals getting kicked out of their homes all year round because of men cutting down trees in the Amazon Rainforest. As I was writing this I wanted the reader to feel for the animals. That is why for most of the poem I focused on the animals and how they felt. Also I wanted to let the reader know that the animals weren't just stupid old animals with no feeling, but actually were upset. I wanted to give the idea that when the animals were in trouble they stuck together and stayed as a team.

10: When I was four I would Swing on any bar I could find I would do cartwheels all over my garden Imagining gymnastics in my mind When I was five, I knew what sport I wanted to do Cartwheels to flips And forward rolls to handsprings When I was ten I knew what sport I could do At the age of six I moved into squad But they told me I was not good enough I would try but have fun I would play and laugh And then I moved to America and still worked When I was five, I knew what sport I wanted to do Cartwheels to flips And forward rolls to handsprings When I was ten I knew what sport I could do | GYMNASTICS

11: My new team became a second family I knew where I was supposed to be Always having fun but working hard I won medals and trophies When I was five, I knew what sport I wanted to do Cartwheels to flips And forward rolls to handsprings When I was ten I knew what sport I could do Next thing you know I am twelve And I realize all the hard work paid off Because now I am can do all that stuff easy I want to keep learning and trying When I was five, I knew what sport I wanted to do Cartwheels to flips And forward rolls to handsprings When I was ten I knew what sport I could do

12: Gymnastics The poetic device used in this poem is a ballad. My poem also has a rhyme scheme for every paragraph except one. A ballad is a poem that is a story and a song. A rhyme scheme is when a poem has a pattern of when it rhymes. In the poem, I did an end rhyme. That is when words rhyme at the end of the sentence. The effect on the reader should be that if you try hard enough you can reach your dreams. As I wrote it, I wanted people to understand that even if you are told you are not good enough, there is still a reason to try.

14: A Night in New York Everything is dark Coloured lights flashing around Noisy and busy Cars honking, loads of traffic Hundreds of neon signs

15: A Night in New York The type of poem is called a tanka. A tanka is similar to a haiku, except a tanka has 5 lines and in total 31 syllables. The poem describes New York during the night. I want the reader to picture it as a busy and colourful place, with many signs flashing and traffic. I want the reader to feel like chaos.
