One can say, “Trees separated by fences”, or “Posts split by comments”; or use the active, “Fences separate the trees” and “Comments split the posts”. The mind's eye may see posts with the first passive expression, and see comments with the second active, but the comments don't necessarily get any denser or longer in the mind's eye with those verbs.
I'm trying to find words or verbs that, when used, make the mind’s eye see the separator or divider more than the divided, and also see the divider bigger or magnified, just by the verb describing the dividing. For example, even if the trees are thicker than fences, the posts may not necessarily be longer than the comments, so I'm wondering if there is a word I can use to describe the division or partitioning while giving the impression that the divider, the comments for example, are longer, thicker, and denser than the divided, the posts.
Please don't get hung up on the examples used, the posts, comments, trees, and fences; they're just examples. I'm more interested in whether there is a verb or words that can deliver the meaning on my mind. It can very much be literary or metaphorical.
