The meaning of

Whispering Thorns

The thorns of the Ziziphus mucrota, known as the  

Buffalo thorn, “blinkbaar-wag-’n-bietjie” in Afrikaans

and “mphasamhala” in Tsonga, are spaced along

the length of every branch in pairs. One of the

pair points robustly outward and forward while the

other curves back and inward in the oppiste direction.

The Nguni African legend says the thorns tell us

something about ourselves - that we must look

ahead to the future... but we must never forget where

we have come from.
