Looking Out Onto Our World: Explorations of Power, Dogma, and a World Deserving Contemplation is a work of non-fiction in the poetry, slice of life, and anthology sub-genres, and was penned by author T. P. Graf. This thoughtful and fascinating collection of poetic works takes us through many years of different experiences and perspectives. The intention of the collection is to make a realistic observation of life’s journey, but with an eye towards hope and celebration, and the author takes several different time periods and locations in which these complex notions are explored. What results is a collection full of emotive and intelligent wordplay.

Author T. P. Graf has crafted a wonderful array of verses and ideas which will certainly please poetic fans seeking introspective work which also expands out into wide-reaching themes and relatable points. I enjoyed the organization of the work, which takes us along on unexpected moments in life as well as some very uplifting spiritual moments found in somewhat unlikely places. A particular favorite was Grama which had some beautiful imagery and a heartfelt theme. The author expresses artistic freedom over the verse and word choice but also makes a concise effort to convey the point of each poem very well, and with the maximum emotional impact. Overall, I would highly recommend Looking Out Onto Our World: Explorations of Power, Dogma, and a World Deserving Contemplation for poetry fans everywhere as a great pick me up and talking point to share with others.
