The Golden Sun

The Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. It consists if 17 syllables with 5 used on the first line, seven on the second and five on the third line. The following poem is my first attempt at writing a haiku:
As the golden sun rises
Above the hills, I gaze at
Birds chirping on branches.

I sit alone to watch
As those young ones
Gap above, high above.

Flying up above them
Is their caring mother carrying
Prey in a busy beak,
