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
