Mated Edges of a Double Sword

Falsehood, when you see it as such, becomes at once truth.
Truth and falsehood are the mated edges of a double sword.
None alive can separate with certainty one from the other.

This is the best I can come up with tonight on these words from Ryokan’s poem. There are biblical references As in the word of God is….etc. I just thought to do a rap on this one otherwise I could be here all night typing.

Mated, chums, inseparable
As twins, close friends
Enemies conjoined.

Edges sharp
cutting deep

The sword cuts
the dual
in one!

Zazen awaits me.
