latest files copying over to new path

Code:
ls -lrt | nawk -v D="$(date +'%b%e:'| sed 's/ //g')" 'D==$6$7":"{sub(".*"$9,$9);print}'

This picks only the latest files created based on the timestamp for that particular day..

how do i copy over the same files to a different location????

        do cp "$FILENAME" /path/to/dest/
done

If you could explain what you were accomplishing with nawk, there may be a better way to do this with find.
