While nestled inside that divine sanctuary, words were my window to the world outside my perch in Columbus, Ohio. (Benita Porter, The Power of Words)
It seems like while-clause is a participial clause (a dangling participial one). Is it? If so, is the subject ‘I’?
Yep. This is a classic dangling participle (past participle in this case). The subject is “words” but the participle isn’t meant to modify “words” (at least, I don’t think the words were nestled anywhere). The clause is meant to modify “I” but the author never put “I” into the sentence at all.
