Improve Work Environment

Plant the flowers.

Bury what needs to die.
Crack and become undone in the dark to grow.
Push through to the light.
Grow awkwardly and even a bit ugly and weedy at first.
Bloom into all your glory.
Prune away what must be let go so new blooms can grow.
And do it all over again.

Plant the flowers.
