Central Park winter path. Shakespeare Garden in the snow.I think back to days spent wrapped in the cold silence of freshly fallen snow in Central Park. 

The labyrinth-like path leading from Shakespeare Garden lined by a wooden fence twists and turns in the snow winding its way under trees whose branches reach out to each other like eager arms awaiting the warmth of an embrace.

It’s on days like this when the sun rests longer than usual and winter’s essence seeps through every crack and crevice that the earth quivers a ghost shiver that rests in summer’s memory.

The rustic wooden fence rests on a four acre section of Central Park known as the Shakespeare Garden which is located in the west part of the park near 79th Street. On the 300th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death in 1916, this area was dedicated to Shakespeare and named. The plants and flowers that are found in this area are all mentioned in the works of the playwright and are also plants and flowers that are found in his garden in Starford-upon-Avon. There is even a white mulberry tree on this four acre plot of land that is said to have grown from a graft of a tree planted by Shakespeare himself in the 1600s. 

While the paths that winds through Central Park’s Shakespeare Garden is gorgeous in the warmer months of the year, it’s absolutely stunning when snow has freshly fallen.

This photo was taken during one of the last major snowstorms (a blizzard) in New York City back in 2011.  We haven’t seen snow like this, in this magnitude, since then.  I have been going through my photos from the two blizzards we experienced that winter season wondering if we will ever see snow like this again. Who knows?

Central Park winter landscape. Angel of the Waters. New York City.

The silence that engulfs the world after a snowfall is deafening. 

All heartbeats, all footsteps, all meandering thoughts and evocations are wrapped in a heavy blanket of snow. 

Trees cease reaching for the sky, weighed down by the weight of the sky’s tears of joy and there is scarcely a breath to be heard.

Winter muffles the earth silencing it’s yearnings,

and all at once there is peace.

The definitive crown jewel of Central Park, Angel of the Waters is one of the most famous and universally loved fountains in the world. Also known as Bethesda Fountain, it was designed by
Emma Stebbins.

This particular photo of a snow-covered Central Park was taken during a break in a bitter blizzard that hit New York City a few winters ago. The snowstorm dropped a few feet of snow on the city covering the trees and iconic sights in Central Park in a gorgeous coating of icy beauty.

Summer’s memories sit suspended like words caught in the throat of winter: stifled, muffled utterances barely able to escape in the form of speech. 

But in the wide open expanse of dreams, words take flight. 

Summer’s memories break through shards upon shards of branches making their way past the ice-kissed lips of winter conjuring up the outline of buildings and cityscapes on the condensation of winter’s frozen breath.

View from Belvedere Castle in the snow overlooking the San Remo. Winter. Central Park, New York City.

In the yawning hours of the morning, the earth stretches its snow-laden limbs skyward and the clouds leave a dissolving trail of heart-heavy whispers in their wake as all of the city’s structures deliquesce into nothingness.
