Rene L Bennett's Profile:
If you come here thinking you're going to read alot of happy, life is great, I couldn't ask for more, then you have come to the wrong place to read. I write alot of angst and come to think of it, I always have for alot of years. I think that is why I am a writer.I have these feelings inside my mind and soul so deep it seems I just can't reach deep enough to scratch them. I have always been a deep thinker and always searching for answers to the unknown. At an early age of writting, I had alot of questions. Questions about life and it's mysteries. These past three years, since my family died at the same time, I write alot about my grief. Though I am growing in the grief process, I feel I will always have a yearning for my lost loved ones and I will always write to them the rest of my life. It is my release so I can breath again and go on with life. My writings are more of a healing process for myself. Pen and paper are my best friends and have never let me down yet. I do have 2 grown sons which I am extremely proud of. They are the only family I have now and they are my life.

Cap and Bells (my version)James C. HorakHi James, I don't know if you remember me, I haven't been to this site in a long time. But I remember how much I always enjoyed reading you and this is no exception. Your words always seem to flow so ever elegantly from your pen. Beautiful write! Rene'2012-11-20 20:12:39
Womencheyenne smythInteresting! Being a woman myself, I dont view myself as a sedan but rather a Royal Royce....and being 50 years old I have no choice but to wear each wrinkle with dignity and smile because they were well worth getting, boy I had fun growing old...lol Thanks for the read and thought.2012-09-23 23:59:06
The Serial KillerJames C. HorakHi James, It's been a few years since I have visited this site and your poem is my first critique. Yes, I remember you. Now for your poem, different..the title caught my attention. You were always good at using what I call dictionary words...lol...that is a complimenmt...I am jealous of your vocabulary. Thanks for the read..loved it!2012-09-23 23:54:55
BugabooDellena RovitoDellena, Thanks for the giggle! I hope that is how you meant this piece. I picture in the midst of summer, misquotes, gnats, flies and all the other annoying insects. Did I read this right? Either way, I think it is cute. Has a sing along song rhythm to it! Always, Rene' 2009-02-28 00:27:55
AwashRegis L ChapmanRegis, This is absolutely beautiful. And your thought and metaphors beam! She washes her hair with the rain against a cloud...my gosh!! Poetry at its best! Clap! Clap! Clap! Bravo on your masterpiece!! Rene'2009-02-28 00:24:52
Stormy WeatherDellena RovitoHi Dellena, Hope all is well with you my friend. This is sad. Beautifully sad . Grips the heart yet, words ring true. One part really stuck with me, Uninvited people have developed...isn't that the truth! Happens when un-needed. Well, if you wrote this from feeling, I hope you're felling better! Always, Rene'2009-02-27 02:02:37
Into The SunMichael BirdMichael, I feel like this often. You have penned my thoughts. Well done. I love the imagery, rain clouds hiding the moon yet, the sun always blinds you and shines. Maybe the sun is telling you that you're not alone? I did enjoy reading your thoughts.. Always, Rene'2009-02-19 08:11:02
My Voting Record-JanuaryDellena RovitoHi Dellena, I don't have an input about your voting selection but thought I would say hi and hope all is well with you! Rene'2009-02-19 08:08:00
Poem PurposeJames C. HorakJames, Your poetry makes me smile...seriously. I love your imagery you pen. I love your last stanza, especially "drawing back at the slightest quiver. Hinting from faint breath" You have an extremely talented imagination that shows in your words!! Always, Rene'2009-02-19 08:05:26
Meaningful MushKenneth R. PattonHi Kenneth, Short but effective. Beautiful love poem. Could be a Hallmark verse. Rene'2009-02-19 08:02:27
ContributionThomas H. SmihulaHi Thomas, I agree, there is A LOT one can gain but I as yourself, sometimes fear change and the uncertainty that comes with it. Why rock the boat when it is not sinking..true? But then again, one hiding in a shell seems to miss the golden opportunities we see so many others achieve. Love your poem and the message it gives. Always, Rene'2009-02-19 08:01:08
Says Who?DeniMari Z.Hi Deni, As reading your poem, I visioned back in the 40's or 50's (something you see in a old movie) a small dirty house where the whore lives with her children watching and hating ever move of their mother as man after man visits. Then the last two stanzas changes, snapping me back in time. Yes, each person is an individual and a lot of children (especially when raised in an environment one hates) don't follow the life of their parents. And change is such a rush of relief. I really like your words and the message you give. Always, Rene'2009-02-19 07:56:14
My January VotesDuane J JacksonHi Duane, I don;t have much of an input to your voting but thought I would say hi! Hope all is well with you. Rene'2009-02-19 07:42:24
Summer eveningMark Andrew HislopMark, I'm not to sure what you are writing about here (probably just me, I tend to do that a lot) What I did gather from your poem is a struggle between loneliness and balance within yourself and you achieve more than just balance but peace at the end. Either way, I love your imagery. Always, Rene' 2009-02-19 07:41:14
Across The SeaRegis L ChapmanRegis, Wow! You sure have been in the writing mood and have done a GREAT job in doing so. Your words scream emotions but in such beauty. I feel your deep thoughts as you penned. I once lay at the bottom of now carries me....jaw dropping, breathtaking!! It sounds as though you have been going through some trials lately but are finally heading towards fresh air. I know what ever it is you have been going through, it sure has brought some beautiful words to live and I feel honored you have shared them with me. Always, Rene'2009-02-19 03:07:55
TouchstoneJames C. HorakHi James. Again, you take my breath away with your words. Your beginning sentence immediately caught my attention. and of course your second line is amazing. To walk the mind further than else can alone..my gosh, just that one sentence can really make you wonder...just how long can a mind walk alone? Interesting. I truly wish I had the thoughts and imagination as you pen. Always, Rene'2009-02-19 03:01:40
Wands, Mirrors and GlassRegis L ChapmanWow Regis, I truly loved reading this. I read it as a very deep love poem. A beautiful love poem. After I read the 6th stanza then read on to...you would then know and could see so dearly, as I held this mirror who resembles you so nearly...OMG! This is true talent. Your imagery here is perfect. Now that I read your comments, I can see your thought process here. Regis, I truly loved reading your words you have penned here!! Always, Rene' 2009-02-19 02:57:23
Happily Missing PotentialMick FraserHi Mick, Excellent thought provoking piece you have penned here. Yes, the future can only beckon yet, holds no promises.

Child AbuseJames C. HorakWow James! If I had a vocabulary as great as yours, along with your wonderful imagination and the talent you do in penning it all together.......I can only wish. I do truly enjoy reading your work and try real hard to figure you out sometimes, but always enjoy it. Always, Rene'2009-01-09 07:40:56
You Say You're Spiritual?!!James C. HorakJames, LOL, I am sorry but your additional notes made me chuckle a bit and the answer is YES, (and I looked up the word syntax so I understood the full meaning.) Your words make sense and ring so true. You have the musical way of making any of your poetry sing even in a tongue lashing! I love it! Always, Rene'2008-12-31 12:35:45
Among the LeavesKenneth R. PattonKenneth, Excellent write! I seriously enjoyed this especially after reading your inspiration. Yes, I re-read this and I can see the imagery and the thought you have here. It would make one think the stories those old dogs tags hold. It would really be awesome if there was some way of looking the name up somehow. (Wouldn't it?) Wow, now you have me wondering on this one tracked mind. I like the pondering this piece has given me. Always, Rene'2008-12-31 12:29:25
The Comings and GoingsDellena RovitoDellena...WOW!! Breathtaking!! And I mean it! I read this piece twice. I so envy (yet, love to read) the imagery you pen. It is so beautiful, I only wish I could master the art. The last stanza was my favorite.. Believing to be powerless We sat as still as petrified rocks.....This I feel could be one to send out to a publisher or two..see what happens. You just may be surprised! Rene'2008-12-19 21:07:58
DireJames C. HorakHi James, As always, it is a pleasure reading your poems. You use such imagery! You always seem to paint a beautiful picture with your words. I love the stanza, A moment thunders into passing...breathtaking!! Always, Rene'2008-12-19 03:19:38

The Bridge of Tears AgainMichael BirdMichael, This reads so beautifully! And I love your title "The Bridge of Tears" Breathtaking!! I can relate to the words you have penned here, especially Seeking the past, ignoring the furure, Back to a simpler time these words I guess can read for just about everyone in different times. I really enjoyed reading your poem! Rene'2008-12-19 03:16:11
Pace of Grace In LifeDeniMari Z.I love your imagery. Very talented. This read (to me, anyway) as a solomn peaceful, well thought out piece. I love the stanza, Tp where there shouldbe celebration.....Placid roads to follow. Breathtaking!2008-12-19 03:12:49

OverlookedKenneth R. PattonHi Kenneth, This is different than what you usually write. At first I was imagining a real elephant locked in a zoo but the more I read, I took this as to be an out of place child. I may be wrong in my thinking but that is how I read it! Rene'2008-11-25 06:41:35
The Society of PoetsJames C. HorakJames, I gotta say, I really love this! You always have a way of penning such beauty with words that flow from this readers tongue. Another write to be proud of. Rene'2008-11-25 06:39:32

in the galleryMark Andrew HislopHi Mark, This is defiantely a different write which makes it more intersting because I wonder about the mystery in which the writer has penned here and what thought inspired this piece. I enjoyed reading this for the fact it made me think even deeper, trying to understand what you see. Awesome!! Rene'2008-05-29 01:30:43
A ToastMichael BirdMichael, This is absolutly beautiful!! And defiantely going on my voting list. I enjoyed reading every line and every stanza of this poem. Your imagery is breathtaking. And the Brisge of Tears are words only a true poet could imagine. Congrats on your masterpiece!!! Always, Rene'2008-05-28 12:43:43
RemembrRegis L ChapmanI truly feel you penned this piece straight from your heart. I clung to and felt every line and stanza as reading. You have shared a very personal piece of yourself with us and I for one feel privilaged for if you're like me as I write, my words on paper is the real me that people in my real life never sees or even has a clue what I hold inside. Only those who read the words I write, know the real me. Always, Rene'2008-05-28 12:30:10
Mr. HinkeyJames C. HorakHi James, LOL, I guess this was not dedicated to me for my name is not Mr. Hinkey and I defiantely wouldn't shoot an elephant in the head. I really liked the ending for I am sure everyone at sometime in their life has had thoughts come out of our asses but hopefully we learn from our mistakes as we grow in life. I am really curious as to what your thought process was when writing this because I have read this three times and still don't understand. Always, Rene' 2008-05-28 12:19:29
Old FolksKenneth R. PattonKenneth, What a honest and great write. You actually brought back my own memories of remembering when I was young and even people in their 20s and 30s seemed so ancient to me then and as I reached youth, I agree, it seemed so sad to me then how it didn't seem fair in life that my grandparents should be so old (or so I thought) And now, as I too am middle aged, I see life as intended and the old age I thought was so ancient, doesn't seem so old afterall. Thanks for the read as well as a great memory. Rene'2008-05-28 03:49:29
over the moonRegis L ChapmanRegis, I am so glad you added the comments you did because it made this poem even all that much more beautiful and defiantely gave this reader the imagery as I am sure you wrote it and all I can say is bravo! I bet it is so beautiful, your meditating rock. And I hope your flight lands you safely with your loved one. Rene'2008-05-28 03:43:31

The Dragon InsideDellena RovitoDellena, You took me through several emotions in this piece. The 1st stanza was most mild, kind of sad...the 2nd stanza, you pick your mood up and actually seems like anger flew from your pen and the 3rd stanza, I liked best of all....It doesn't really mean anything (lol) they are thoughts from awhile ago..(perfect) Always, Rene'2008-03-07 05:35:38

A True StoryKenneth R. PattonKenneth, I enjoyed reading your memory of your granfather. I guess back in the WW 2 era, people really did believe they were fighting a cause to finally put an end to all wars. But who was to predict the future or the advancement technology has made since then. Though, it was a good idea and a great thought for those nack then truly fighting for the cause. It makes you wonder, will war ever be obsolete? I honestly don't think it ever will be. It never has been yet. Thanks for sharing your memory and making me think. Rene' 2008-02-07 17:09:14
BUFFY'S SONG AND RISING ABOVE IT ALLMark D. KilburnI admit being dumb here. I honestly do not know who Buffy St. Marie is...lol. Nice write though. Always, Rene'2007-12-07 01:49:38
