A day in August 1969

A month after Neil Armstrong

took some pretty big steps


Days after Sharon Tate

took her very last breath


My parents walked down the aisle

and are still side by side


Technological leaps and milestones

Small steps for mankind broadcast

around the world as The Troubles began


Seamus Heaney wrote ¨Summer of 1969´

from his apartment in Lavapies in Madrid


Rockets reached the moon

Concordes came and went

Masks became the new norm

but our home is still a home


Four children were born

and Fiona had four more


Half a century celebrated

a year ago, a golden anniversary

marked the words “I do”

On a day in August 1969

51 years ago
