Medium intentions

My daughter is going back to camp this afternoon.  Last night, we had every intention of going to church this morning.  This morning those intentions wavered in their intensity.  Laundry had its way with all of us.  The birds are singing.

I tried to get up
For church.
It could probably be said
I had
Medium intentions.
Nothing hot.
Nothing cold.
Pleasantly cool.
I thought to get up
But when my daughter
Had to dry her clothes
For camp instead,
It seemed better
To stay home and drink coffee,
Keep her company
In the living room
As her clothes dry,
The cat sleeps
In the sun.
I write this,
Pour myself another cup.
