Posted on 4 Jun 2020

We've now drawn #CornerstoneAtHome Writers' Club to a close but before we leave it there, there are some final pieces we'd like to share. Esme has combined the Mystery brief with the Haiku challenge.

A Mystery Peak
by EJ Bates

Humpty, Dumpty? Sat,
Fall or pushed cos he was fat?
Why did he fall? Splat!

Jack, broke crown? Hill,
Fell or pushed by Jill?
Tumbling after? Ill?

Bo-Peep lost her sheep?
Animal neglect, child
A mystery peak.
