Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: we are family

Lyrics: 

V1
rich pigments of Mother Earth
color us all with her beauty
hues of her soils and seas
enlighten dreams in our eyes
we share her space together
her spirit forever

C
we are one human race
enriched by diversity
we are one human race
all part of one family
sharing this one world
and such a wonderful world
it could be..

V2
sage lessons of Father Time
empower us all with wisdom
his knowledge of many years
sparks the hope in our thoughts
we share his time together
his guidance forever

C
we are one human race
enriched by diversity
we are one human race
all part of one family
sharing this one world
and such a wonderful world
it could be...

B
Mother Earth and Father Time
teach us compassion
Mother Earth and Father Time
teach us civility
Mother Earth and Father Time
teach us inclusion
Mother Earth and Father Time
teach us humility

C
we are one human race
enriched by diversity
we are one human race
all part of one family
sharing this one world
and such a wonderful world
it could be...

Very good spin on the prompt. A lot of words and a very well developed lyric in a skirmish. Very nice!

Pretty fancy opening verse...you covered elements such as earth and seas. You also brought in colors and some comparative natural beauties of the world. The chorus shows the earth as our family which is something that Helen also hit on, great job. Mother Earth and Father Time...yeah, those are good ones. Chorus and out...pretty solid Liz...but then I already knew you would kill this skirmish. Nice job on this.

I just knew you'd have the inclusive view point in your song. I really like that your bridge is almost a prayer or a meditation.

I can hear this being either super-folky singalong or slightly off-kilter, new-agey thing. Good, rich positivity in this.
