What does poetry mean?

Not so much the dictionary meaning but what does it do for life in general. What is the meaning of poetry? Is there a need to ask such a question? I believe that there is a need. For me, poetry does for the reader what paintings do for their viewers. I am not a huge fan of poetry but I have slowly come to understand that there are aspects of poetry in everything we do from day to day. What are your thoughts?
