The July, Oh My challenge, or also known as JOM, is slowly gaining speed. What with personal travels and holidays, what with a child sick, the third prompt comes two days late. Yet, as far as I have any idea of my readership, most friends visiting this place live in the US, so for them the delay will be like one day. Those from Europe will forgive my slowliness, I hope.

opera-jomThe prompt for July 3rd is Opera:

The Barber of Seville –
Its overture still haunts me
Containing all important parts
Preparing the audience
For niceties,
All pleasant pieces
And the like
So people may come back
