The Elemental – Author Ken Allan Dronsfield


The oak branch danced

to a serenaded minuet;

neither wind nor music

were heard as I listened

intently to my throbbing

heart beating a drum roll.

A dark Elemental inhales

and the shadows bend

on the high mossy wall

whilst the castle keep

wipes sweat from brow;

a murder of crows send

‘meet and greets’ as the

black tea steeps and

cream creeps into a pink

cup from my silvery spoon.

The Elemental exhales and

dark shadows bend again

whilst long wailing screams

drift and echo contrite as

twilight retreats and joins

this haunted, starry night.
