Verse followed by a state is a synonym for something being (or finding itself) in that state. This is covered by definition #17 of ver in the Dictionary of the RAE. What follows the verb can be an adjective or any other complement that shows a state, place or situation. Often you can treat it as a synonym for the periphrastic passive voice.
