'caught in thoughtful mood' is the definition.
The answer and definition are not the same part of speech. However, adjectives and past participle verbs occasionally mean the same thing.

(Other definitions for profound that I've seen before include "Showing great insight" , "Far-reaching" , "deeply intellectual" , "Needing deep thought" , "Extensive" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
