I found the phrase: But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds.

Can you explain me the phrase: patterns behind?
Can I use it in other sentences, for example: Only he knows patterns behind his words.??

Thank you in advance.:)

Clouds form patterns because of atmospheric conditions, etc, I don't think that this could be directly applied to your example with words- there's a change in meaning to me- if there are patterns behind words, there are secret messages, etc, which are not present in the clouds example.

Russians translated this phrase in such way:

But only sky knows why and where the clouds move.


Thank you very much. That's like the hidden meaning of something, As I understand)))))
