“May All Beings Be Happy”
By Leah Pearlman, July 1, 2013

Last month I traveled to Japan to join with thousands of like-hearted people at the base of Mt Fuji, to pray for “Peace On Earth.”   The event brought together leaders from several different faiths to lead us in prayers from many religions, and ended with a flag ceremony in which we prayed for peace […]

Dads in Heaven
By Leah Pearlman, April 15, 2013

I imagine a special spot in heaven For the dads. It looks like the bleachers at a little league game. But way up in the clouds. Each dad has on the jersey With his kid’s name, A picture in his wallet. Each dad is smiling With ruddy cheeks And glowing skin. They’ll shout “That’s my […]

Catching the Truth.
By Leah Pearlman, March 8, 2013

I’m trying to tell you the truth. But I don’t know how. Because the truth moves fast, Like a shooting star. “THERE! Did you see it?” Every now and then, I catch a glimpse And when I do, It always looks like Love. So how about Instead of talking We just hold hands. Until we catch […]

Enough :-)
By Leah Pearlman, January 11, 2013

                    Do you know you’re enough? That you’re made of the stuff Of the stars And the Czars And the moons around Mars? Can you feel your body Is all that you need? From the curve of your brow To the bend in your knee? From […]

Work with what you got.
By Leah Pearlman, January 8, 2013

This past weekend, my mom and I took a meaning-of-life class disguised as a clay-sculpturing workshop. The teacher, Caroline Douglas is a BEATUFIUL student of the human condition, and expresses it through her art and teaching.  It’s rare I come into contact with Genius and Love like hers, both are still reverberating through my cells.

Uncensored.
By Leah Pearlman, December 31, 2012

Sometimes I have something to say. But I’m afraid if I do, something will break. Like my truth is made of nails and snakes, Sharpened knives and shattered glass, Licked with flames and doused in gas. I hold my thoughts like jagged claws Trapped, behind clenched jaws Fierce, like a tiger’s incisors bared Deathly scared […]

Surrender
By Leah Pearlman, October 30, 2012

I’m still falling through your abyss, I still hear your words, I still feel your kiss. I’m still losing layers, still shedding skin, I’m skill breaking open, still caving in. I’m still letting go, still coming apart, still tearing down walls protecting my heart. I still feel your arms like blankets of sand, I still […]

Faking a Rainbow
By Leah Pearlman, October 22, 2012

Have you tried listening with your elbow When you don’t like the song? Tried spinning in circles When you can’t get along? When you have a bad day Try stomping and say “Everything’s crap!” Then go take a nap With your head nestled in Your favorite friend’s lap. Have you tried singing in thirds When […]
