In Rabindranath Tagore's "At the End of the Day", there's one stanza that goes like this:

To you I only pray –
Before I go let me know
Looking at the sky
Why mother earth so green
Gave me a call
Why the silence of the night
Told me the stories of the stars
Why the lights of the day
Raised waves in my mind –
This is what I pray.

I'm a bit confused by the line "Why the lights of the day / Raised waves in my mind". What are the "waves" in the mind, and why would the lights of the day be raising them?
