Hello mystery writer. That's a pair that looks like they are ready to take on the world. They will certainly be friends for life. My wife has a twin sister and they read each other's mind. HAHA
Good luck in the contest.

Well fit, set written and syllables counted due to the 5/7/9 writing prompt entry structural format and its friendly sisterhood narration storylined content. A good work.

Hello anon, this is a very well written 5/7/9 poem. These short forms are not easy and you have done very well with this one. Three well written lines true to form and I particularly like - 'A sisterhood of cohorts always'. Such a sweet picture of the little friends. Good Luck in the contest. Warm regards Dorothy x

I am grateful for facebook. It has reunited me with my friends and classmates from over 60 years ago. There is one that no one hears from and my best childhood friend. I am afraid because of their abusive childhood, they have become an alcoholic. It is very sad that they've never worked on things. We almost got together but I was told they just couldn't do it. Well written.

    Thank you for the stars and kind words. Alcohol has destroyed so many lives. Not just the drinker but the family as well. It affects you all through your life, even if you decide your not going to let it affect you. It can't be helped.

I enjoyed your poem. Best friends are such a blessing and a joy and it's wonderful when the connection is kept into adulthood. I'm sure it won't affect the judging but there needs to be an apostrophe - Best friends' hearts. Good luck in the contest.

I like this. They do look like they're inseparable and are two peas in a pod. They may keep that friendship for many years to come. I like the message of this and enjoyed reading this well written work. Well done.

Lovely little poem with charming image that you chose. Best friends. Such a great thing to have - way into our senior years. Altho some of us do not agree on religion or politics - we remain friends.

    Thank you for your kind words and the stars. You are right about not agreeing on politics or religion. My best friend and I are on different plants at times but we still love each other and agree to disagree. Shirley

This is a very nice contest entry, with a cute picture to go along with it. I never had any friends when I was growing up, but I'll bet it was a good feeling to experience. Thanks for sharing.

    I have to ask why you didn't have any friends while growing up? You don't have to answer that at all. Just me writing what enters my brain. Thank you for your kind review and the stars. They are appreciated. Shirley

    I was painfully shy as a child. Because of this i was bullied both verbally and physically. I became afraid to be around other kids.

    Yes, bullying can affect a person from childhood through many years. I was bullied so I do understand.

Oh, anyone whose shared a special, long-lasting friendship like this will identify with this sweet poem. My longest lasting friendship only goes back to high school, but I'll take it. We have been best friends for nearly 50 years :) Thanks for sharing and good luck in the contest.

I count 5-7-9 syllable lines as per writing prompt entry requirement. The chosen photograph goes well with the poem's theme. The words ring true. I especially liked the last line and the use of the word "always." A true friend always is there when you need them to be.
