Illustrator Saturday – Valentine’s Day & Poem

valentinesdayhearts

Since it is Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d look through all the Illustrator Saturday Posts  to find illustrations that would help us celebrate the day this Saturday.

Barbara DeLorenzo kicks it off, but Annie Wilkinson must really love Valentine’s Day, because you will five illustrations in this post done by her.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! Hope you enjoy the illustration and the poems that Eileen Spinelli, Abida Tabassam, and Carol Murray sent in to go along with the pictures.

ANYWHERE

Love can find us
anywhere:
on a bus or bench
or chair,
in the sunlight,
starlight,
dark,
walking through
a city park,
climbing up
a snowy hill,
lonely,
fretful,
tired…
still–
like a haunting song
or poem
love will bring
each heart
back home.
 
by Eileen Spinelli

BLAZING

Let’s go all out this valentine’s, my Sweet,
Laces and ribbons, balloons and treats,
Tickle my taste buds won’t you, my Sweet,
The ones I keep hidden way down and deep,
Unleash the showers of chocolates and flowers,
Whisper sweet nothings for hours and hours,
And I will be yours right after my summons,
My keyboard is flashing,
I just have to write this one.
All my Love,
My Sweet.

P.S. I might be a while.
