Hello everyone!
Welcome to Blue Turtle Crossing!

A Halkoem created by the talented artist Halkios in honor of Blue Turtle Crossing's June issue!
Please enjoy!

My name is Colleen Breuning, and I have created this semi-annual e-zine to showcase the wonders of nature and human emotion, through beautiful photography and poetry. My goal is to promote a website to encourage others to share their own creativity, discover the pure pleasures of poetry and experience the powerful splendor of nature, reflected in still frame.

This is the largest edition of Blue Turtle Crossing ever, with the work of 20 poets featured! Effective this issue, there will no longer be a "featured poet," as all the poets published on this site deserved to be in the spotlight. I would like to dedicate this issue to the memory of my son's friend, Rachel Hoffman, who was brutally murdered in May 2008. Please see my tribute to her on the News page by clicking the link below:

Tribute to Rachel Hoffman

I would also like to dedicate this issue to a myspace poet and friend, Divine, who is seriously ill with bone cancer. She has captured the hearts of her myspace friends, and we are all praying for her as she fights the battle of her life. Please visit her featured page in this issue by clicking below:


So take a few minutes from your busy day, relax, and enjoy the beauty on this website. Feel the peace and serenity. Come back and visit often! Please feel free to forward this website and to tell your friends.

Submissions are welcomed and encouraged. Please see the submissions policy by clicking on the link below:
