saving daylight

in the kitchen junk drawer
with old pens and chip clips
or mason jars on dusty cellar shelves
used for summers fireflies or falls pear preserves
or faded shoe boxes shoved under the bed
where treasures of sea shells
with bits of pale green sea glass are kept

where will all this daylight
be saved
from one year to the next?
