Shari

A Definition by Anonymous Meditation

Not the name of someone, but the soul of essence:
small crystals from among the ashes after cremation
(or can it be creation?) as what is present
impacts on us who remain living:

Once I stood at the bedside of a great man.
He was near death.
“I am with you,” I said.
“Good,” he answered. “You can watch.”
Watch what?
He knew my thoughts.
“Watch as I move to my next existence.”
He passed away with smile on his lips.

Cremated, we sift through ash for essence,
for shari to place in a shaft of relics
giving us strength when we are weak,
grounding us when we are strong.
