INGRID CASEY

 

 

 

Ingrid CaseyIngrid Casey is a poet, teacher of ESL and single mother. Awarded the Henry Hutchinson scholarship and Frank McGuinnes prize at undergraduate level while studying English and philosophy at Maynooth University, she has retained a love of language throughout her teaching career, and her literary wings have sprouted in recent years. Motherhood, nature, literature, philosophy and art inform her work. A native of Dublin living in Kildare, she has had poems published in The Moth Magazine in 2015 and Banshee Lit in 2016, and is working towards a first collection. 

 

 

 

  Martin Heidegger

 

 

               Has been resurrected, he is now

             a piece of origami, a paper bird.

             Twenty different sides, one for each

             truth. Hanging from a tree in your

             garden, he taught us how to fold and

             unfold our faces, open to each other like

             lily pads on a summer's day.
