That should be easy, but you need to use an extension function to
store the data back into the db. Try the following query:

import module namespace xdb="http://exist-db.org/xquery/xmldb";

for $p at $pos in //Para
    xdb:store("/db/content", concat("para", $pos, ".xml"), $p, "text/xml")

The new files will be named para1.xml, para2.xml ...
