T is for triangle #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z in April Challenge 2019 I have picked some words, which are connected with physical space.

T is for triangle – a shape with three
Sides. Whether equilateral, scalene or isosceles
Its internal angles when added must be
No more or less than one eighty degrees.

The sort of triangle I missed out in the rhyme for T is a right-angle triangle. I have some in the picture of a pedestrian bridge.


Elsewhere in this challenge, I have listed the prefixes for polygons with different numbers of sides beginning with five. Quad is for four as in quadrangle. Tri- is for three. The God worshipped by Christians is the Trinity, three persons and one God.

My theme for the A to Z Challenge in 2014 was musical instruments. I mentioned an early memory of playing the triangle. I can also remember playing the cymbals. I hit their flat sides together and was reprimanded by the teacher, who showed me how to slide them against each other from top to bottom.

Psalm 150 is a wonderful call to praise using lots of instruments, singing and dancing. The lowly triangle is not listed, but cymbals are there. There is something strange about praising God; I don’t think I am alone in finding that it lifts my spirit.
