RICE AND BARLEY

RICE AND BARLEY

Two a misapprehension
There is only ever one
And yet are also two
No apprehension too

Like rice and barley
Found mixed up together
Letting go in the moment
Holding without grasping

This is based on an old Zen story, but sadly even though I recall the story and its moral I cannot relocate it. Anyone?
