Carol when writing tanka, I use punctuation to separate the parts; that's how I learned to write traditional
tanka and see no reason to change.  I don't suggest punctuation for others unless it's for effect or to slow down the reading; it is also needed sometimes for clarity, otherwise it's personal preference.

Carol, here is a good informational link for a comprehensive guide in writing tanka.  It details the differences between tanka versus haiku that I find particularly useful. I have used this link myself when learning to write tanka.

Grace, I was going to suggest a separate thread for tanka, but that doesn't necessarily mean that
the volume of haiku would increase.  There are only a handful of haiku poets like you and
myself posting in the advanced mentoring thread.  When the haiku postings pick up, I think it's a great idea to have a separate tanka thread so that those who want to concentrate on haiku won't feel
obligated to comment on tanka. 



Congratulations, cat.  I enjoyed the sample poems and
want to read more. 
I'm sure it will be a great read; looking forward to it.

I found the ordering information in the link Billie provided.

Best wishes,
