The heaven was opened

The opening of heaven,
by all accounts,
was not an every-day occurrence.
At Jesus’ baptism, by John,
in the flowing waters of the Jordan,
this rare event,
(according to some ancient stories),
took place. On that occasion,
we are told, heaven’s stately doors
swung wide on their ethereal hinges,
allowing the divine spirit to descend
and to mingle outrageously
with that which is human.

While the record may well be incomplete,
no mention is made
of their subsequent closure.
