Smooth Operator

remembering him
like it was yesterday still
making me giddy

oozing southern charm
completely stealing my heart
broken mold and cast

charming debonnaire
gracious, witty, silver tongue
smooth operator

In addition to the prompt spelling “debonnaire”, I found debonair and debonaire — all meaning a suave and sophisticated charm!!

  5. Smooth operator – I like it – absolutely the modern equivalent of debonnaire. Or debonair, as the case may be.
