Haiku for the week

Blue skies taunt and tease,
So soon giving way to fog.
A brief week's bliss.

The summer swelter hung around a bit longer than usual this year, but for the past week or so the weather in Beijing has been absolutely gorgeous. Well, except that an autumnal chill seems to have been injecting itself into the air a little prematurely over the last few days. And I awoke this morning to a dense smog. More mist and fog is predicted in the coming week - which means the air quality will be atrocious. And my lungs are in meltdown already, from some virus or other. Oh, it's grand to be back, to be sure.
