Tiny Links In The Chain.

Just thinking about the tiniest lives that live mostly unseen, but without them nature’s structure would crumble.

Trees stand tall,

devoid of all armour,

protection fallen to

the feet of winter’s


Yet guarding still,

those who bind


about the naked 


The tiny lives:

insignificant beings,

that hold the world

upon their backs.

Given the useful role that these tiny creatures have, I don’t think that the the adjective ‘insignificant’ is appropriate, Sue.
I suggest that you find an alternative. Unnoticed, neglected or overlooked, perhaps?

Dear Sue, I have already given my opinion in the previous comment, but it is your poem and if you are happy with it, fair enough.
