Jemimah Minuscula

I am a lesser prophet ...
there are people out there
better than I am
more highly-inspired
with a greater gift
and longer hair -
the marks of a true seer ...
whilst I play at being here
my words a mere pocket
book of tiny sayings, yet I care
very much: do all I can
to fulfil God's commission
not fail his fire.
