Have anyone ever used "vein" as a verb to mean 'to cover a place like the vein of our body does'? I tried this one and used it when I was writing an article. Now I want to ask you is it understandable and is it correct? Or is there any better strong word to mean the same thing? It was early evening, the weak glow of the setting sun was at the western sky accompanied with the dark clouds. The darkness was hanging over the black forest, a sacred forest. Nobody ever had any knowledge about this forest, wild shrubs and trees alone are the only inhabitants of this wild forest. The river that veined this forest was bubbling furiously, its water was dark.
