Patterns from cut fronds are a reminder of the lost 'branches' in a typical palm tree. The do provide a rhythmic expectation in the visual form and protection for birds to nest and insects to burrow in the practical sense.

Repetitive patterns provide a sense of stability, a feeling of comfort, a rightful prediction as to future events. Disruption of patterns can be extremely uncomfortable, but they can help us practice coping and adaptation skills. The removal of such predictability can lead to the 'flight or fight' syndrome until we practice using our brain to think through options....Still, patterns have their place in our world!
