This is a research paper about Salmon Mush. We were supposed to write a research paper based on something that was mentioned in the book “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” by Sherman Alexie. The subject “Salmon Mush” was fun to research and write about. I think it is something that is worth sharing.
Kiwi for Breakfast
Every morning I want to eat something sweet,
Something green, soft, and sour to eat.
Squish! I dig the spoon into the soft kiwi fruit,
The spooned out piece decides to jump, oh shoot!
I don’t give up and try again,
but the second piece decides to jump too, oh man!
The third time I try, I eat with success,
Soon later I realize my hands are a mess!
As present-timed as a toddler I don’t think about that much so,
I rather wonder how my day would be different if I ate the kiwi as a whole!
I chose the fruit kiwi, because I really like eating it. It also is something special to me because the fruit is rather ugly on the outside and pretty on the inside. In the poem I used end rhyme to make it a couplet poem (AA BB CCC). The theme of this poem is rather casual, so I thought it would sound a little happier with a rhymes. The last line “I rather wonder how my day would be different if I ate the kiwi as a whole!” has some deeper meaning to me. I always wonder about things like that. How small chan ges can make a big difference in my life. I think about it all the time.
This is one of my favorite pieces that I have created this year. It’s a short story that I wrote at the beginning of the year. I am quite proud of this short story, because I never wrote anything like it before. It is about the main character, “I”, trying to get up in the morning. Usually getting up in the morning isn’t something that you would make into a whole short story. So I am glad I came up with this idea. While challenging myself to write in present tense, I also tried to fit some similes and personifications into my writing. It was a fun piece to write.
