I recently (as in, before I remembered that this month was Elements) bought a computer game called 4-Elements. It's quite Pagan in tone -- for each of Earth, Fire, Air, and Water you have to
  1. Restore the desecrated altar by finding the hidden items in the picture, and then
  2. Restore each of four pictures in the magic book for that element
    1. By working through four increasingly long and complex mazes (per picture) to drive the elemental energy to the altar, and
    2. Correcting the changes in the card from the original

I've gotten through three-and-a-half elements: Earth, Fire, Air, and the first two cards for Water. Each element has a magical race (Dwarf, Elf, Fairy, Undine), a Knight, a Dragon, and a magical creature (Griffin, Phoenix, Pegasus, and I don't know yet) associated with it. Also, each card has a bit of common-sense wisdom, like, "Long ago people found a valley that was full of all kinds of good things, but they were didn't care well for what they had, until the mountain exploded. That was the Fire Dragon punishing them for their thoughtlessness." (This is greatly paraphrased and shortened because I didn't want to type all the text from the card. Can't copy-and-paste because it's a picture.)

Do with it what you will, or not. It's not a very good prompt.

From this I got "The Elements of Wisdom," a free verse poem about how the mortals forgot about elementals and nearly destroyed the world. But the elementals had a plan...
