What's the connection between winter squash and poetry?

The difficulty to cut open the squash.  The physical effort.
To begin the poem by splitting open the page.

Winter squash is formidable & delicious.  Some poems are difficult to begin but worth the weight, the effort to cut open.  Creating a nourishing soup is writing a poem.  On this knife and spoon agree.

  1. The priest ruminated on the frozen soil and mineral deposits
    of Norsemen, treasures of their crossing, relics of their conquest,
    great locks of hair and weapons underwater, impenetrable depths
    described by poets as dark planets with their own orbits under the sea.
