the sustainability of cultural experiences.

With funding from the Tennessee General Assembly, ABC grants offer financial support
for community building arts projects in all arts disciplines as recognized by
the TAC, including dance, music, opera/musical theatre, theatre, visual arts,
design arts, crafts, photography, media arts, literature, interdisciplinary and
folk arts.

According to Shannon Ford, director of community arts development for the

programming that strengthens social networks through community engagement.”

White Tiger & The Succulent Peach


, , ,

Lying in his den, White Tiger says to himself, “I need something sweet and fleshy, now!”.  He canters and strides down the hill into a lush garden.  He approaches a beautiful peach tree.  White Tiger plucks a very full golden peach.  This peach however; was rather special.  As he holds the peach in his hands, he is reminded of his woman.  He thinks of the heavenly scent, the plump roundness of both her bosom and rear, and alluring color of yellow-gold tones all over.

White Tiger notices how the Peach became slightly warm to his touch.  He slowly bites into the Succulent Peach only to faintly hear erotic coos crying out.  White Tiger continues, but gently, to eat near the top of Peach- her breasts are kissed.  When he eats at the bottom, her legs are kissed.  White Tiger could feel her legs wrap around his shoulders.  As White Tiger east closer to Peach’s center, his lover’s body began to take life.  As his tongue swayed from side to side, Peach’s center begins to pulse more and more.  His lover has become fully fleshed.  Then White Tiger focuses on Peach’s center rushing his tongue in like a never-ending, thumping drum.  Peach’s nectar is flowing now.  White Tiger does not hesitate and devours the rest of Peach.

One last waning moan is released from Peach and soon she vanishes.  White Tiger feels satisfied and invigorated, more so, of what he had done to Succulent Peach than having it.  He strides up the hill again, back to his den.  “Soon I will go back to her … again!”, as he chuckles to himself.

The White Tiger and the Cherokee Rose (random draft)


, ,

His eyes are as beautiful, sparkling, and dark as black diamonds.
He crawls toward her crouching over her dark, golden curvaceous body.
Kisses on her neck, chest, and hips make her tremble and breathe with sweet yearning.
White Tiger slowly, slowly lies on top of his Cherokee Rose.

While staring deep into each other eye’s, he embraces her.
Then moves his thighs up and out to open her wide.
White Tiger glides in between her hips searching deep into her vessel as it grips him.

Cherokee Rose submits all of herself and receives White Tiger’s fullness.
He moves inside her massaging every inner space he can find.

She holds onto his rocking shoulders as best as she could,
But the waving ecstasy nearly overwhelms her in unconsciousness!

Her lover’s tears does not stop his sweet ongoing torture he gives.
He shows little mercy to her pleas of catching-her-breath, her coos, her moans.
He goes on unleashing his love and passion into her until she finally screams out of rapture.
